I've heard they are for more advanced hobbyists, not to say they are impossible though. Just need a slower flow with lots of grab points

I did some research before on sea horses and they are a bit hard to care for sometimes. They need to be in their own tank perhaps with a non-aggressive slow bottom dweller. They are very slow swimmers and cannot have much flow. If you have faster fish in the tank they will eat all the food and your sea horses with die in a short time period. A lot of people set up a tank special for their sea horses because that is the best way to be able to control their environment and make sure they all have enough to eat and thrive.

Here is a good article about them. It tells your a bit about the anatomy of the sea horses and talks about what tank mates they can have and cant have. It's an interesting read. I personally love sea horses and want a herd of them but they take a lot of extra care and cant go in my regular tank. When I first started not to long ago they were the first ting on my list but I had to push it off for a while after I heard the whole story about them! lol

I have not read the article yet but sea horses was one of our first sw talks and figured we had to keep them in a species only tank.

Yet another article to read. How serious are u about seahorses?
