Re:Dwarf Seahorses for a beginner


Thank you very much for the prompt and professional feedback you always give. I like how you look through my plans and pick out the pro’s and con’s instead of quickly shooting me down like on some other forums. You also give very good research information and actually seem to care about the progress in my dwarf seahorse research. Thank you again.

I found this on one of your earlier post about the natural predators of hydroids:

the hydroids have many natural predators in the wild, such as nudibranchs and certain gastropods, which feed on the adult colonies (the nudibranchs will even absorb the stinging nematocysts from the hydroids and incorporate them into their own bodies as a means of defense), as well as many fishes and invertebrates that prey on the mobile hydromedusae (the reproductive stage of the hydroids).

I am still thinking of keeping the 5g panacured tank with macroalgae (I’ll just create a separate reef tank for the zoanthids) but I can’t help but ask what type of nudibranchs are the predators of the hydroids? And can they be housed with the dwarf seahorses?
