Question about buying a sea horse

Heard they are slow feeders and will struggle to survive in a tank with clown fish ? Do I need to set up a different tank to enjoy them ?

I would seriously doubt their ability to live in a tank with something like clowns. A species only tank is really their best bet.

I have seen a mixed banggai and sea horse tank in a public aquarium.

I would make sure I get captive-bred specimens as the natural habitats of those species are endangered if attempting such project
