Re:Guidance on keeping seahorses



The information you gave me was very helpful indeed. I would very much so like to set up a tank. I have about a million questions on this topic. I already have a saltwater tank and I have to wait several more months before I can stock it with fish, is this the same for seahorses? What size tank would be best to start out with? Once they are set up can they be moved? How many horses can be in one tank? Can there be more than one breed in a tank? When you say, "breed like bunnies", does that mean my tank would be overloaded? I don’t want to set one up unless I know for 100% that I can handle it. I read where they won’t eat their babies (that’s a relief after some stories i’ve heard on that subject) but how many do they have at a time and how do you maintain all of them in one tank? Do the babies have to be removed, put in a breeding net, etc.? If there are any good books out there I would love to know where to get some. What type of other fish can be kept with seahorses, or are they best kept in a seperate tank. The tank I have now I plan on stocking with tangs, angels, and clown fish. Is there somewhere I can find a good compatibility chart or should I just plan on having a home for just seahorses? (BTW, I think a seahorse tank only would be awesome). One more question, for today, what is the difference in a pixie horse and a dwarf horse? Thank you very much for your time on this. It is of great importance to me that I know what I’m doing and what to expect BEFORE I get started.

P.S. I definitely plan on buying farm raised horses.
