I am a newbie so I may not know what I am talking about but......

I have read you can't have much flow or it will knock seahorses around. The returns would have a lot of flow wouldn't they? Don't think they would like it much.

That screen will get clogged up, believe me. And like I said, and which rdnelson pointed out, there'd be too water much movement in there.

not as much flow as you'd think and yes seahorses are poor swimmers, also microbubbles in the water will kill them and rot them from the inside and it would stink so bad
