    My friend gave me his "old" Marineland ML90609 Portrait Aquarium Kit, 5-Gallon he just got from amazon and then decided it was too small so he gave it to me:cool:. I would like to do a dwarf seahorse tank and I would be hatching and feeding baby brine once a day. Could I use a Continuous Hatch...

    I have a few question and need some advice... I set up a 2.5gal square tank with a sponge filter, few fake plants, light, thermometer, and that's it. Very basic. It's at 72-74 degrees so I took out the heater. Anything I am missing from the tank? I have a question. I bought store bought salt...

    Hello, I just missed my dwarf seahorses transfering their eggs! But the male definitely has a bunch in his pouch, so many there was a string of them hanging out and he is buldging! How long will it be before he gives birth? Also is there any particular time of day that seahorses prefer to give...

    Hello! I have had 4 dwarf seahorses for about 4 months now. Two days ago I noticed little squiggles of white floating around and when I looked closer they were baby hippoccampus zosterae! It's been two days now and I have had one-day-old baby brine shrimp available for them 24 hours a day. My...

    I have not added any live rock from LFS to this aquarium, I did add shells we collected on the beach two years ago. Got my dwarf seahorses two weeks ago they were shipped with grass to hold onto. That is all that was added. Last night I noticed this on my grass so I removed it from the tank. Any...

    Hi guys, i've been thinking about keeping dwarf seahorses in my smaller tank (22L ~ 5.8G) since it has been empty for quite some time now. I've had it for about 2 years and only things living in it seem to be mysis shrimp since i use to feed that to my fish. I understand it's more work than my...

    I have a 20 gallon tank set up that I made "pod ready" as in I seeded it over a month and a half ago with with c and a pods. I put in over 2000. I was wondering if it would be safe to get 4 dwarf seahorses and 2 baby pipe fish now or should I wait. When I order them I'll be ordering another 2000...

    Hey everyone, new member here. I'm experienced with saltwater, and I've finally decided to set up a seahorse tank. I've done lots and lots of research for the dwarves, so I know they're not easy, need live baby brine/pods/etc. I have a 5 gallon that has been cycling for about 6 weeks. Here are...

    Two of my dwarf seahorses have died. I feel so bad, I think it's old age as they were slowing down and eating less. My remaining seahorse, a female, is lonely, I can tell. I don't know what to do. She was so social and loved swimming around. Now she looks sad. I moved her to a smaller place, as...

    I really want a snail or two to clean up after the seahorses, I was thinking one or two Nassarius snails. Would they be okay in a two gallon, my tank is bare bottom. I would really like to have some sort of small snail to help scavenge leftovers at the bottom of the tank. Would the snails be a...

    Today, there are at tons of babies (I'm guessing 13 or more but haven't counted) in my tank. This is a 2 gallon! Three babies were hitching onto the males tail and eating and others are swimming around or hitching to one of the fake plants or fake coral. Untill yesterday, I hadn't even known my...

    Just in case I ever need to I thought I would ask.... Will seahorses be okay with a couple of days without food? I am planning to get two Dwarf Seahorses this week, I have ordered food and I'm waiting for it to come in so I can hatch them (baby brine shrimp) and then to order two seahorses. I...
