Lonely seahorse?

Lonely seahorse?

Hi Pete, I had my pair of OR mustangs almost 2 years when my male developed popeye several weeks ago and died after I added sand from another tank.  My skimmers have since stabilized the tank.  Now my female is the lone seahorse.  She does share the 36 gallon DT (with a 20 gallon sump) with an OR pipefish, a captive bred clownfish that I raised 7 years ago and royal gramma that I have had for 4 years.  My question is I would like to get her a mate or seahorse friend.  I know having fish in a seahorse tank is not optimal even when the fish are docile and disease free.  Am I best to keep her a lonely widow or should a new seahorse friend adjust ok?  I can not bear to lose another pony if this is overly risky.  I should add that she is eating very well and does not appear to be grieving.

Thank you Pete for your

Thank you Pete for your response to my question via email.  I will get Eve a friend but I wont feel rushed.  I will make sure the tank is settled and stabilized by continueing water changes and my other maintenance for a while.  That way I can feel confident that the tank is ready for more ponies.  Thank you, Dawn
