Dear Ricky:

Abalone are herbivorous snails that feed on macroalgae (e.g., kelp) and providing you can keep up with their dietary needs, they will do well in an aquarium with seahorses that have the same temperature requirements. All abalone belong to the genus Haliotis and are temperate snails that prefer cool water temperatures. So you should not consider keeping abalone with tropical seahorses, but they will do fine in a temperate aquarium with cool water seahorses such as Hippocampus abdominalis if you can provide the remarkable snails with enough suitable vegetable matter in their diet.

Best wishes with all your fishes, Ricky!

Happy Trails!
