    Hello, I hope you are doing well with your set up for your seahorses. I see that you were looking for a supplier for seagrass and such probably to make things look more natural to the ponies in your aquarium and make it more of an eye catcher since most corals are an "off limits" to seahorses; although, there are a few that they can tolerate, it is just the outcome of the corals tolerating each other, and the high lightning needed for corals which seahorses do not like high lighting plus it will cause a hair algae growth problem on the artifical decors. They are more nocturnal critters. Back to the subject, you can find some macros here on seahorse.com like the gracilara. You can take pieces of it and glue to an empty shell or a rock with a hole to fit it in, and place it in the tank where you wish for it to grow and they will use for hitching. If you are looking for a variety of grasses and macros and a site that allows you to study which are not good for your system; you can search reefcleaners.com or another on reef2go.com or liveaquaria.com. However remember that when you order from a place like reefcleaners.com or reefs2go.com most of their products are straight from the ocean and not properly checkek for parasites and hitch-hikers (sea lice that are very stressing and will kill quickly as they multiply). I would not use the water in my system and would rinse them thoroughly before placing them in my tank after close inspection of the algaes. The red and black mangros are excellent hitching post that eat up phosphates and silicates in your system in order to grow. Then you have your flame algae that eat up nitrates and such, etc. I wouldn’t advise the bubbleline algaes nor the grape callurperas. They tend to get out of controll and are hard to rid your tank from them.
    Just to think of a couple of sites that I have used for my set ups other than here on Ocean Rider, I hope this helps you out. Just remember to rinse thourough and don’t use the bag water. You could infest your tank. Other than that they offer nice macros at a great price also.

    Happy hunting and decorating,
    David 😉
