Sea Horse

I was thinking about starting a small 20 gallon sea horse tank. I have heard these guys are tough keepers but I was considering a bare bottomed tank using power and sponge filtration and utilizing my current reef tanks' water to fill the Sea Horse tank.

Any opinions or ideas about keeping them.

Want a great read check out my debut novel Neptune's Garden: www.neptunesgardenbook.com

I'm not much of a Marine Aquarium Expert. However, I would also love to start a Sea Horse tank but I have much more homework ahead of me before I do that. Good look on your venture. I will be reading enthusiastically.

Okay instead of doing this all over again try my new forum. Go to the seahorse category and look at the sticky. It's a long article type thingy I wrote on them, not totally finished but it should help out some.


Try going for a 30 gallon tank. That should house a pair of H.reidi just fine. Any smaller than that and your getting into coldwater species like H. Capensis.

Just to clue you in on something, A tank with bare bottom and a filter isnt going to do if you didnt know. sEAhorses arent something to go cheap on. They require a lot more attention than your average clownfish and at 120 dollars for a pair you dont want them to die.

Try oceanrider.com. has some great seahorses for sale and a greal deal on reidi.
