I am far from an expert on seahorses, but from what I do know, are they hard to keep?

Extraordinarily hard.

I've read that they are the ultimate challenge for the skilled hobbyist. They need to be in a species only tank, are very demanding of water quality, and generally require massive amounts of live food pretty much around the clock.
