I'd be afraid that all but the tiniest of lionfish with the largest of seahorses would treat the seahorses as a crunchy snack. Even if you could pull off the size differential somehow to avoid the predation issue, seahorses are such slow eaters I'd think they would starve with lionfish.

I saw on Craigslist someone selling a 20 gallon tank with one black seahorse and a dwarf lionfish. Although 20 is way too small for a lionfish IMO it appeared as though they could be kept together happilly.

I saw that too. I have seen several videos with them both in the same tank. If the lion fish was well fed???

hI,
I keep seahorses and no you canot have a lion fish in with seahorses,there are not many fish that can be in a tank with them in.

They are very slow swimmers so need a tank that they dont need to fight for food.
