Re:Hello – Looking seriously into Seahorses!


Hm – alright, via posts by Pete, I see the smallest recommended size is 40G high. I do realize and understand that water parameters are easier to control with a larger aquarium, however, I’m pretty leery about setting up another ‘large’ tank. I have a 75G and a 20G in my office as it is (and actually, a 5G for feeders as well). The new seahorse tank would be set up in my home, and I’m only a renter. No doubt we will be moving, and the smaller the tank, the easier to move.

According to another page on this website, you can easily keep 6 horses in a 30G, which I’m more than willing to go up to. SO…do you (Pete, or someone with a ton of seahorse experience), think that a 30G is going to be just fine with live sand, live rock, a refugium, filter, and protein skimmer? The 30G x-high is 24 3/4 inches tall – this means I might actually have to go out and buy a new one versus getting a cheap used aquarium off craigslist, but so be it.
