Not to worry, you've already done better, just by being here on AA. With the amount of shared wisdom that can be found here, we are all doing better this time. You will too.

Got mines when I was 17. I did really bad with that one. I did everything wrong. And then the tank leaked and we never put it back up.

I must be misunderstanding your comment. Seahorsesource.com sells captive bred, and tank raised seahorses so it is not affecting the seahorse population, but actually encouraging population growth. This steers people away from buying wild seahorses, knowing the possible parasites, and population risks. And dwarf seahorses are actually quite hardy pets, as long as their needs are met, but they do require special care that I have made sure I'm capable of giving. So believe me, I know what I'm doing.

Still it's like keeping a lion as a pet. So wat if it's captive bred? That doesn't mean t deserves a horrible life in a little tank. The seahorse population is endangered. By supporting that company, you support them catching seahorses in the wild. They have to keep catching more to keep breeding more.
