I now that chocolate chips get very big, that's about it.
As for seahorses, they should be kept in a species-only tank with other seahorses or pipefish. If they're in with other fish, they are too slow to compete for food and usually starve. Or else they get picked on by other more mobile fish and then die. A lot of stories about seahorses end with "and then it died". They are very difficult to keep, so they are labeled for "expert" aquarists only. Even LFS
have a hard time keeping them alive. I love seahorses, but I'm no where near qualified to keep them, and i know this.
