If your keeping seahorses you won't be able to keep corals anyways since the flow will be almost non existent.

you wont want anything else alive in the tank, Live Rock has critters, some of which can kill and eat the baby seahorses. You dont want much of a flow, plus live corals will sting them.


seahorse.org - Tankmates

^helped me out a lot when I was studying how to take care of them. But for now I dont think Im ready to grow the live food every day and everything that it takes to take care for of them, maybe when I win the lotto and can sit at the house all day

I dont know about the water flow, but I do know from reading that the larger seahorses are easier to take care of cause you can train them to eat frozen foods.

well I know dwarf ones need live food 2 to 3 times a day, so if you cant keep up with that. I would go with the larger ones, they can eat frozen brine shrimp, Myrais shrimp etc.

20 gallon extra highs are great for seahorses. That's what I got when I was setting one up. They have the same footprint as a 10 only twice the height.
