Yes protein skimmers are indeed beneficial for seahorses as they eat many times a day; just be aware of the product because any skimmers releasing too many bubbles causes airpockets in seahorses, particularly males

In my interest in getting seahorses I went & visited a breeder near me. He had 1000's of them, it was amazing. I learned a lot, one of which is how hardy captive seahorses are. My home conditions (&probably most people's) are way better so I'm pretty confident about them now. I've been going back & helping a bit now. He says I have an endless free supply so now I just gotta get my 60hex set up for them.

Those guys are beautiful! I have many pictures of mine, feel free to check them out!

Hardier of other seahorses and imo easier to breed. They are generally happy go lucky and I have mine trained to come to my hand
