6 months is not long at all when talking about a reef tank. A tank needs to be mature and established to responsibly add a nem. A lot of very experienced reef keepers would argue even 6 months is not long enough and it can take 2 years for a system to truly establish and stabilize.

Not going to work with other fish. Seahorses are some of the most difficult and sensitive species kept in captivity.

Which fish do you want?

Seahorses are not compatible with clowns, anthias, any damsels, and most others. They are not at all for new tanks or beginner hobbiests.
