In the first place it will be very hard to keep your water perfect in a very small tank like that. And no, a seahorse needs to be in a bigger tank. I had two in a 29. I think they recommend 15 gallons per SH.

From the little research I have done seahorses aren't the easiest to keep. They need stable temperatures which means a heater and a chiller.

If you are looking for something for a small nano tank that is different what about pom pom crab and a few sexy shrimp?
