Seahorse purchase?

I have a 29 gallon FOWLR tank that only has 2 percula clownfish, a pajama cardinal, 2 green blue chromis and a CUC. If I move the chromis to my larger tank, would I be able to get some seahorses for the tank? Also, are they hard to keep? Dont know much about them.

They do best in a species only tank cycled with 0 live rock since hydroids are a very common hitch hiker and can harm them. Also they need to be fed multiple times a day for best results and require very low flow. You could get away with some but they are much better off when you build a tank around them like this

Thanks. Think I will get a nano tank for the kitchen later after I study them a bit. SWF.com has some tank bred ones right now. You might want to check them out.
