Seahorse Advice

I love seahorses but not sure which species would be best for my 55 gallon tank. Any suggestions

This is going to be a species only tank right? No other fish in the tank?

try dwarf seahorses they are the easiest to keep and in a 55 gal tank you can have up to i think 36 of them, 2 for every 3 gallons

Whaaa!? Dwarf seahorses are by far NOT the easiest to keep. The usual erectus, kuda, reidi, fuscus, or kellogi. You can keep fish with seahorses, but it is best to make sure they are passive/shy. Pipefish are another great seahorse "companion."

Melosu58`s seahorse diary

Here is my log on a seahorse tank. I do believe you`ll do better with the 55 gallon tank.
