Thank you for your information. I have only been keeping seahorses for a little over 1 year, I consider myself to be very new to seahorses. I tend to be very cautious and would rather understock a tank.
My 57G has live sand, live rock, a good protein skimmer, a Fluval 304 cannister filter, dedicated seahorse tank (no other fish), and only tank raised seahorses. I started keeping salt tanks approximately 30 years ago and am very careful in monitoring the chemical levels in each tank. My 57G has been stable for 4 weeks. In the past I have purchased a single seahorse at a time, to ensure their welfare. I have two young pairs in a 30G tank, that was my first seahorse tank. I now have two 10G (modified tanks) I use for babies and two 20G (grow up tanks).
My oldest babies (all 5 of them) are 4 1/2 months old. My youngest are 2 weeks old (# unknown).
I setup the 57G to provide the best enviroment that I can. I will wait until after the Holiday rush to order my new Sunbursts. Don’t want any shipping delays. I wish I had found your website when I first decided to try keeping seahorses.
Thank you for all your help.
