Re:Thinking of starting a seahorse tank


Well seahorses are not the easiest fish to keep but once they settle and find their place they do very well. If you got a pair of seahorses and a clown then that would probably be the maximum for that size tank. Well seahorses like to have something to grab onto (hitching posts). The best diet for them is mysis with Vibrance. They work well in reef tanks (no anemones though). They can only live with certain non agressive fish (find a marine fish compatibility chart). Seahorses are natural born hunters so shrimp are not the best tank mates. Your clown would go very well with the seahorses (exept the maroon clown fish which is very aggressive). Seahorses are not generally active and swim around all the time. Also in the wild they camoflouge to blend in with their invironment so the will change color according to surroundings. if you have any more questions feel free to ask and good luck with you new seahorses!
