I too am new and cycled my tank for about 3 months with various fish and live rock and then set up a refugium. 37 gallon with a 20 gallon refugium macro algae and even more live rock and live sand. I have a chiller and uv
and protein skimmer that is breaking in as we speak. I have 8 seahorse in them that were all wild caught and fed them baby brine for a week while adding in mysis twice a day. They now all eat frozen and looking awesome every once in a while I'll treat them to baby brine or live mysis in the future but for now they all eat frozen. Depending on the kind you want they typically need 65-74 degrees in temp anything above they are prone to infection and parasites. All the other parameters stay the same like other marine fish. I'm working on pods
and breeding them and photo plankton for my Kenya tree!
