Seahorse feeding idea

Ok so this is probable a far fetched idea but is there a way I could hook something up to automatically feed my seahorses?

Seahorses dont eat anything dry that I have seen That you could put Iin an automatic feeder. They mostly eat pods if you can get some in your tank. I used to feed mine frozen mysis.

The only thing I can think of is having a separate tank, where you are raising live mysis, connected to the main tank with an inverted u-tube connecting the two tanks. Large enough for the shrimp to swim to the horses, but small enough that the horses can't go through.

It sounds good at least... lol

If you can't find the time to feed seahorses, maybe seahorses aren't the best idea.
