sea horse tank set up

I have a 30 gallon long tank that is currently not in use. I was wondering if I could get some help on possibly setting it up as a sea horse tank. If this particular tank wont do I also have a 29 tall a 20 tall and a 55 that could be used for this. I like the foot print of my 30 long so want I want to use this one if possible. I havent done alot of research yet but will be over the next month or so bacause I want to do it right. Just looking for ideas and any advice would be greatly appriciated.

This is the tank I plan to use. It has seasoned live sand. Was in another tank for over a year.. I used a bio wheel emporer to make a hob refugium where I added alot of live rock rubble that I took from 2 different sumps that is cured. I cant remember the rating for the power head but its small. The lights will be changed over to LEDs as soon as I get the stuff to make a bracket for them. I plan on ordering live seaweed but used decorations I already had just to decorate for now.
I also plan to get a small heater that can go in the hob fuge before any ponies are added.
