Hi Nigel,

Yes, the life span of dwarf seahorses is about a year.

Your reidi fry would not be able to be kept with your Pixies. Reidi fry are pelagic. They require a kreisel type nursery bowl which provides circular water movement keeping them off the surface where they can take in air which they will eventually die from.

You would not need to hatch much brine for a pair of pixies….. maybe a 1/4 teaspoon every few days.

I like small frequent water changes in small tanks. I would recommend 10% or 1/2 gallon once a week.

They would be little, actually tiny, 1/2 to 1.5 inches.
