Seahorses are in the main tank. Still shy and not eating much though :/ Transferred the mandarin over to this tank.

Also, some macroalgae is turning a bright orange. Is it dying? Even if it is, it looks awesome!

That's actually a pretty sweet idea, fancy macros like yours would look pretty nice.

On the topic of your last post, wouldn't the mandarin eat all the pods your seahorses will
Forage on?

The seahorses eat frozen mysis so I wouldn't see it a problem. I've seen the mandarin eat a couple pieces of mysis when he can but he eats nutramar mostly or Copepods. I don't see there being a competition for food since they aren't exactly eating the same things right now.

My mom transferred the mandarin without me knowing it since it's her fish so it wasn't my decision. :/

Fo sho, here's an update! Seahorses are eating well, but only when we pit food in their little "troughs" or shells. They'll wait by it when they're hungry..so cute.

The female really blends in well with this leather!

Also it seems that she's the queen and the monti is her throne

Got a few new things and thought I'd make a little update. Seahorses are great, but temp is low at 68 so slowly raising it up.

Your tank and seahorses are beautiful! Hope you get your temp where you need it.

Thank you trying out a new one (cobalt I think) since the finnex burned. This is actually a good heater for a seahorse tank since it's flat and thin so they cant wrap their tails around it.
