Re:What Seahorse can I get?


Thank you for a great reply!

Ah that is a shame.

I know of a Fish Store that can get ORA Tank Raised Seahorses so that is the good news.

I don’t what species is a good starter one though? I am disappointed that only female Erectus are sold and the color is black.

That would leave me to choose between the Kuda or Redi. I want to get a yellow Reidi but don’t know if that is a good choice.

They have
Black Erectus (H. erectus) Females only
Reidi 3.5+" (H. reidi)
Yellow /Orange Kuda (H. kuda)

My tank set up is going to either be a Red Sea Max 130D (29 gallons) or Oceanic Biocube 29 gallon. Both tanks are taller than 20 inches. Which is good. And both are 29 gallon tank capacity. Is it true that bubbles can get Caught in the males pouch and cause them to die?
I was going to add a protein skimmer but don’t know if any bubbles would escape.

My questions are how many seahorses should I keep in a 29 gallon I was thinking of 4. And how many hitching posts would I need?
