Hi saltwater people! Im March for my birthday, I am thinking of setting up a saltwater aquarium. Right now I have a 2 gal
shrimp tank, I am in the process of a 25 gal
community build, and soon I am going to start a 5 gallon dwarf puffer or pygmy sunfish tank. So you could say MTS has taken hold
Anyways, i was at first thinking if a 10 gallon nano with a goby, corals and shrimp, but H. Erectus have taken my heart. I have horse anyways, so seahorses would be cool to have!
Right now I am thinking of doing a 25 gallon with a pair of Lined Seahorses, some corals for hitching, some algae because I know they like plants, a protiene skimmer (sp?) instead of a hob
filter because of the current, and possibly a goby if I could, but I would rather be understocked because this would be my first salwater tank! I would not have a sump, either. Would I really need one though?
I would also purchase a small ro
unit, and mix my own salwater because we live in the country an it would be a whole lot cheaper. Plus I can't drive yet, and the nearest lfs
is about 30 mins away from our house.
Basically, I am wondering if seahorses are an okay first salwater fish, and if I am on the right track to keeping them! Thanks
