Hi Fishlover,

10g is small for Zulus IMO. I would not recommend anything less than 20g for a pair of Zulus. 10” tall should be fine. Keep in mind that these guys need cooler water 72 to 75 degrees max, with the lower end of the range being preferable. Maintaining this in a small tank can be difficult, especially with the summers we have been having lately.
There is quite a bit of info on Zulus in the is thread…,com_simpleboard/Itemid,/func,view/catid,2/id,884/#884

I am sure a Pixie could survive by itself but it would not be ideal IMO.

With the exception of micro stars there would not be any starfish I would recommend for a 5 to 10g system. Any of the herbivorous micro hermits and small snails should be just fine for either the Zulus or Pixies.

Sorry I do not know if there will be a Zulu special anytime soon.

I am guessing that your friends do not have any current information on captive bred seahorses, especially those coming directly from a breeding facility such as OR. Your CB OR seahorses should lead long healthy lives if properly cared for. They are shipped Fed Ex overnight double bagged in marine water and placed inside a Styrofoam box. They are packaged very well and most handle shipping very well.
