Sea horse tank

Hello folks I have a 55 gallon tank I set up about 10 months ago because my wife wanted sea horses. Before I got the sea horses I had two clowns in the tank anyways I moved the clowns and bought her two sea horses about two weeks ago and all is well. I have a question I have a 75 DT with a sump/fug and I have a lot of macro algae caulapra and cheato in the fug and it needs trimmed I was wondering if I could put the trimmings in the sea horse tank if it would grow the reason I ask is because in my fug the light is on 24/7 and in the horse tank the lights are only on for about 10 hours a day will it still grow

The Cheato will be fine, I belive the Caulpra may reproduce sexually and foul the water.

Yes you can add macros to sea horse tanks, in fact they will greatly appreciate it. Make sure you do your research on them though because as the above stated they can reproduce and get out of hand
