The 10 gallon would be fine for dwarf seahorses but I wouldn't put any regular sized seahorses in one. Dwarf seahorses only eat live foods so you would need another tank to raise the live food in. Seahorses are very delicate to any medications as well, especially copper. If that tank has ever had copper in it then it should not be used.

Please don't buy seahorses if you know nothing about them. They aren't for a beginning aquarist or even an amateur, they are fragile and need pristine water conditions to thrive.

And yes, 10G is too small for any normal seahorse

This is a pretty good indicator of how finicky they can be.

thanks guys. I don't know what I was thinking. I'll look into getting sea horses after I've had good experience with my 30 gallon saltwater.
Thanks again. Cheers
