any column tank is actually better for seahorses, they are a up and down kinda fish instead of a side to side. a 15/20g Column would be perfect for normal seahorses.

Now if you end up going with dwarfs, a 5 gallon max. unless you know what your doing as a 10 gallon is too spread out for the food. So youll be pumping in more food then they need, cleanin more, etc.

This is a good point. The extra water volume is nice though. I have a few of them and I keep them in a small 'satellite breeder box' which is basically a small air driven refugium. I couldn't imagine keeping them in the big tank and plan to possibly set up a 5G above the 29G and pipe them together to circulate water.

I am following this thread. I want to do some research on this and hopefully get some seahorses as well, I'm thinking in a separate tank hooked into my sump.
