have some more info to compare!
so if anyone could point me in the correct direction here would be grateful.

Default Re: seahorses

The first thing is to get the tank set up and cycled....Salt water creatures are much more sensitive to ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate than the fresh water critters................I would suggest reading up on starting up and maintaining a saltwater tank.....Read the posts in this sub forum and the info in the Saltwater topic at the top of the forum page.

The hard part in keeping seahorses if feeding them
the foods they need.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!
