Hi i was wondering whats a good seahorse to get and do they have to be in pairs.also are there any fish that can be in the tank with them and is kenya tree and mushroom safe for them because i heard some corals could sting them?

Seahorses are one of the more difficult marine creatures to keep alive & healthy, and usually require very particular conditions that typically entail they be kept in a species-specific tank.
The best seahorse tanks I've seen are set up by people who have an established reef/sump set-up, then they set up another tank specifically for their horses & tie it into the existing sump for filtration.

Wanna calculate the cost of that new reef tank?? Take your worst nightmare, double it, and you're halfway there.

I do not suggest fish with sea horses because they are slow to eat, and could potentially starve to death with fish.

I'm thinking a good refugium may be the best set-up for seahorses.
