Could you use something like a breeding trap? Like the ones you use for guppies? Hang in the side with a slotted divider at the bottom to let the babies drop through to the lower half of the container to be safe. No idea how it would work with a seahorse.

I came here for baby sea horse pics. Not disappointed.

Do they need to have something to hang on to or do they just swirl constantly on the current?

Vinnie, when you say you sanitize with peroxide - are you scrubbing them wiping it down with a peroxide soaked rag or are you circulating a peroxide/water mix through everything for a bit then emptying and filling with marine water?

Thanks. I wondered cause at the hotel they have little packets they dump in the guest room jacuzzis and run the pump for 20 minutes to sanitize it - piping, pump, and all. It is basically peroxide.

That doesn't seem as bad as I thought actually, my cichlids were usually 7 to 8 months to grow out. Although to be honest they weren't NEARLY the work you have to do - I guess in hindsight it is a looong time.
