Hi, I decided to finally set up my dream dwarf seahorse tank. Along the way I've gained a love and collection of gobies/blennies. I currently have a 2 eyed, manderine, yellow jaw, spotted, and fire blenny along with 4 female 3 male dwarf seahorses, one pregnant. The tank is highly seeded with triggers clinging to the glass. I have my filter in slot 1, refugium in 2 and the filter in 3. I also have feather dusters and gorgonians. I buy reef stew from my local aquarium shop and grow my own brine.

Chamber 1 the filter sponge and media. I had to pull the sponge up to cover the filter intake so they do not get sucked up. I have my refugium in chamber 2 with a grow light on the side. It's seaded with reef stew and Tigger

I made a tiny siphon vacuum. The little seahorses leave pellets all over the ground.

Lana you have a really cool tank how long have you had it running for ? I like the feather duster‘s !
I had it set up for a few months now. The large feather duster was the first thing I had bought for it. He was originally alot smaller but grew so quickly. Theu are the coolest ever especially when they spin. I ordered a mini feather duster rock that should ship Monday. When I receive it I'll post it.

Post some more pics for sure!!! Such a cool/exciting new project. Looking forward to following along on this thread and seeing your build develop!

This is so cool. Would you mind posting your feeding schedule? Are you enriching brine or just hatching? And I wasn’t sure what type of fish you said you had... can you clarify?
I have an available Evo5 that I’ve been hoping to mod for Dwarf Seahorses and I might follow your lead...
