I personally see no sense in keeping wild seahorses in captivity unless you plan to breed them and contribute to the conservation efforts. More and more species are being restricted for capture for the aquarium. This is due to overfishing and areas that still harvest seahorses for primative medicines and yeah...the all to notorious aphrodesiac (gimmie a break!!)...as well as dried ornaments in souveniers found everywhere. The wild seahorse population is under serious threat.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

I put my first pair of seahorses in a 40g tall. Within a week, there were no pods of any kind left. You will never build up a pod population with seahorses in a tank, and if you build them up ahead of time, the same thing will happen that happened in mine, gone in no time at all.
I waited years to get captive bred seahorses and that is all I would use.
I have kudas and reidi's in my tank and both will basically only eat the frozen mysis, but even then, they only pick out the ideal specimens and I have to vacuum out the rest before they pollute the tank.
Like a previous post mentioned, check out seahorse.org.
