Okay, that sounds like a plan, sir! I would start out with a pair of the highly domesticated Mustangs, and then you can consider adding a pair of Sunburst down the road once you have gained a little more experience and seahorse savvy working with the Mustangs.
Mustangs (Hippocampus erectus) average around 1 cm in length when they are born and are therefore able to eat newly-hatched brine shrimp (Artemia nauplii) as their first foods, so there will be no need to spring for those expensive rotifers when your Mustangs and/or Sunburst begin breeding.
Best of luck with your new seahorse setup, Nigel!
