Dwarf seahorse build!

So I am getting a 12 gallon biocube tomorrow that has been up and running for over a year and it has a black occ clown. And a two spot watchman but I would like to do some seahorses and small pipefish. Thoughts?

The other fish will starve the seahorses as they are slow and picky eaters.

I would stick with just the dwarfs. But make sure you get some nassarius in there or be prepared to be cleaning the sand bed from the eggs left over from the live baby brines

Anyone have any suggestions on how I should set up the tank or what I should do. I'll have pictures later tonight of how it looks.

Just make sure the tank is slow flow throughout,get the baby brineshrimp hatchery started at least 3 days before hand,the bbs eggs shouldn't be a problem if you remove the bbs from the hatchery correctly but some will get into your tank so just have some air hose to hand and syphon them out while they still float.

Have you gone to seahorse.org? They have a wealth of information and a forum just on seahorses.
