i've never heard crabs being a no no with seahorses, but they are extremly difficult to keep. be prepared and be sure there are no micro bubbles in the water, as they can leach into the seahorse and rot them fro mthe inside

What size tank? You could do some turbos .. live rock absolutely... id recommend finding so branch dry rock. This isn't a plug but www.bulkreefsupply.com has dome great branching dryrock so ur horses can attach to.. also look up some plants to place so they can hold on to it.. I think its called caulprea somthing like that...

Shrimps. Snails. I've even seen one article that says banded serpant stars will work too. Having had one, I can see that being they're so peaceful.

Here's another article about tankmates... http://www.fusedjaw.com/aquariumcare...afe-whats-not/

I have an emerald and some hermit crabs, With about 6 pounds of lr in my 10g seahorse tank. I was thinking about adding a sand sifting goby but I'm not sure which I want or if it would be safe.
