seahorse tank

I have been cycling this 30 gallon for over a month, it is full of crabs, copepods,macroalgae and now......2 Barbouri seahorses! I am really happy with them and the tank.

Of course, always a work in progress.

Hi Hara,

Are these your first Sea Horses ?
I've always been warned how high maintenance these creatures are and I have been afraid to even attempt keeping them.

They look spectacular and I bet that they have amazing personalities.

Awww... I'm so envious.

These are my first seahorses. I have heard about the high maintenance issues as well, I do not see that as a problem in my circumstance as my husband says I am obsessive/compulsive about these tanks anyway.

There are a couple of things that you can do to make your life easier from the beginning. One of them, I have learned, is to only buy captive-bred ponies. This is more expensive, but they live longer, feed on frozen foods and are all over more durable and hardy.

Last night, we had one baby born. I believe it was due to the stress of shipping etc. I do not think he is carrying more as his pouch is rather empty. At least we know he can have a baby or two Maybe some day in the future....who knows.
