Have you tried fans? Here an inexpensive fan on my 90g clipped to my lights and tied to my Apex for on/off temps.Installing a hob qq1 bubble magus protein skimmer next. Currently looking at best way to cool the tank without completely breaking the bank. Thinking of going with chill solutions nano chiller although it still costs a pretty penny at over $200 but the seahorses will need the temperature consistently cooler. Open to listen to suggestions as well.
Thanks again everyone and will keep updating my progress.
Yep, plenty of vertical room, about 20 inches or maybe slightly more. Just ordered some mangrove shoots to plant for hitching posts.
Possibly going to add turtle grass as well.
So definitely leaning more towards seahorses at this point but cuddlefish are so dang cool tough decisions
Id say it's definitely worth looking into. I have a 44 gallon pentagon tank that has other fish in it but I decided on setting up a seahorse species only tank so that the seahorses will be nice and comfortable. Still trying to figure out if I'm going to invest in a chiller or just get a cooling fan. I've read seahorses generally live longer in cooler water around 68 degrees or so.
