Re:Stocking first Seahorse tank…


I have a pair of OR Mustangs in a 24 gal setup along with 4 peppermint shrimp, an Ocellaris clown, a hermit crab, and a bunch of snails and soft corals (Xenia, mainly). The shrimp have learned to watch out for floating crumbs from the seahorses, but are not aggressive enough to approach them. I have seen an Aiptasia from the time I out in some macroalgae, but as soon as the peppermint shrimp came in, I haven’t seen any. The clown is the major food competitor for the horses, but calms down after he gets his fill. The hermit crab and snails go after the leftovers. At least one shrimp is also full of eggs at any given time, so hopefully, the shrimp larvae also become seahorse food on a regular basis. The adult shrimp don’t get any attention from the horses.
