Black Seahorse

definitly my most exciting acquisition a CB black seahorse... i do plan on upgrading the tank sooner or later... likely sooner to a 35 hex nice tall tank for the beauties... well beauty for now but he will have a partner soon enough

seahorses and MAYBE a Pod eater... something that wont compete for food. any ideas would be greatly apreciated. there is an emeralds crab in there... as soon as he exposes himself hes coming out tho.

IMO I would not add a pod eater as the seahorses like pods also. Your pics bring back memories for me from just a few yrs ago.

Hippocampus kuda perhaps? Do avoid a mandarin and primary "pod" eaters. Focus on small, peaceful fish such as: chalk bass, anthias, gobies, fairy wrasses, or even jawfish.

I was thinking Kuda or those Kellogi (sp?) hybrids that have been getting popular. Agree with the avoiding of pod eaters, pods give the horses something to snack on all day. I would also avoid flashy and quick moving fish because they can outcompete and snatch food away from the horses which can scare them.
