Waterflow....be careful with your waterflow, horses are weak swimmers and need a smooth, slower current I believe. Other than that I will be following for updates, seahorse tanks aren't exactly common

I had heard that about them. So would the flow from the filter be enough water movement?

I'd imagine you're still gonna want a powerhead in the tank, but I'd prob go with a single ph and not too powerful either...you're prob best to read up on them and get some specifics from seahorse veterans

I also heard they are hard to feed, and they need live food to stay healthy.

Yeah they are for the most part advanced-keeper only...there are 1-2 that are relatively easy to keep. Check out Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums and biew their seahorse section

Any advice on decorations that are safe for the horses? I know they need stuff to hold onto. Opinions on fake coral?
