Your LFS won't have a seahorse in a few week, =/ sadly it will starve or stress to death.
Sadly, someone will likely buy Seahorses, then the Seahorses will die in the new owner's tank after the owner gets bad information from the LFS
. Seahorses are a good example of when a LFS
can be more concerned with the sale than with the fish. Very few people know how to appropriately keep a Seahorse alive, but they sell very easily...
There is one LFS
that I go to sells Seahorses, but refuses to sell them to people without appropriate setups that do not understand what is needed. She fed them the other day when I was there, very pretty creatures...
