Giveaway time!!! 50 gallon glass tank

You have the art of exciting dialogue down to a science, I don't know how anyone can contain themselves watching you spin. Like watching Vanna White!
I've always wanted to do a seahorse tank but got scared away when I read you're supposed to vacuum daily. Do you have experience with a seahorse tank?
No, I don't. I've also always wanted to setup one. From my reading, we need to maintain same water quality as reef tank except the temperature & flow.

Most seahorses available to hobbyists are going to be tropical meaning tropical water temperatures are necessary. Should you source sub-tropical, temperate, or cold-water horses, the only difference in care is going to be the temperature ranges outlined below in most cases.

  • Tropical: 71-74° F
  • Sub-tropical: 67-70° F
  • Temperate: 64-66° F
