I wanted to get two but I read a lot of info that said they are primarily solitary unless to mate, and I'm not equipped to deal with a bunch of frys haha.

I agree with that. Would u recommend a seahorse to the average aquarist?

As long as they understand the concessions they have to make. They are very delicate. Even an aptasia sting can cause an infection, which I learned the hard way. No stinging invertebrates, no aggressive fish, and a really nice skimmer because they eat a lot and poop a lot and you're
in smooth sailin. I highly recommend it of you can supply those requirements. They are truly beautiful.

It was just a general question, in case I am ever asked. Both of my reef tanks arent suitable.

What do you feed your seahorses? Do they eat frozen or just pods?

Frozen mysis, it does eat the occasional pod it finds in my tank. I don't stock them though.

Great thanks! We have a 35 hex we are going to use when we get seahorses. The thing holding us back now is we have no way to fit a sump in the stand. When we had fish in it before we were using a bak pak with skimmer. But it doesn't work the greatest and not sure what else to use.
