    Loving my horse tank! I wish I wouldnt have waited so long.

    Two pairs of sunburst erectus. They are addicting to watch! "Captain", has a dispute with his little lady and takes off with a chunk of macro. Can't handle the cuteness!

    Seahorse Advice

    I have a pair of seahorse that have been doing really well in my tank swimming around and doing fine. They’ve been nipping at the live rock for copepods. But recently I started noticing that one of them will curl its tail up and seemingly scratch or pick at his head. I also watched him rub his...

    Duncans and Seahorses

    I recently came across Duncans and were interested in adding in the tank. I’ve read mixed reviews online with some people mentioning no issues and others cautioning against. From all I’ve read they are peaceful so was curious to understand if anyone kept or any info if they are compatible with...

    ID needed for Mushroom Coral

    Hello all! I purchased a mushroom coral frag a few weeks ago, and they weren't sure of species but assured me mushrooms were safe with seahorses. Happened to find out that there's an elephant ear mushroom they could potentially eat a seahorse and fish. Looking online there were some that...

    What is this?

    I’m having trouble figuring out what this thing is, a couple of them came on a clump of spaghetti algae I had purchased. I will post some pictures down below. Sometimes I will notice them swimming through the water column like a jelly fish when I shut off the pumps for couple minutes to feed my...

    What tank type is your favorite?

    I am upgrading my tank, and am torn. I either want to get a bigger tank to do a more advanced reef, a large predator tank with few corals, or a tall tank with a few seahorse pairs and seahorse safe coral. What should I do? I currently have a 55 gal long mixed reef, I am able to redistribute...

    What do you feed seahorses?

    Thanks to captive breeding efforts, hobbyists can keep seahorses in aquariums much more easily these days. We have it so much easier than keepers 10 years ago, who had to struggle through "figuring things out", work with wild caught seahorses and learn mostly through mistakes. Today, we can...

    Seahorse in a Reef tank?

    Let me start out by saying I AM NOT PLANNING ON DOING THIS... just thought I'd like to hear why this isn't done:) I'm guessing temperature is the main factor in this. Being that seahorses like it cooler than what reef tanks are normally kept at. But what about some of the ponies that come from...
