    Thanks guys. :)

    I've had seahorses on and off for the last 8 years.. just got into the Brazilians (Hippocampus Reidi) about 4-5 months ago.

    The tank they were pictured in is a 110 gallon. :)

    Right now I have a 30 gallon for my horses.. and the 110 is all reef and fish for the time being.

    Can they be mixed with reef dwelling fish in a larger tank like the 110 or even a 75? I keep reading they should be kept species only, but one would think you could put other fish if chosen properly.

    The problem is that seahorses are very slow eaters and with fast and aggressive fish they often do not get their food. I personally like to keep my horses with nothing other than pipefish (a relative of the seahorse) and fish such as blennies and gobies.. I also have a starfish, jawfish and a seahare.

    can anyone reccomend good reading on seahorses, we've been all over the internet...

    they seem to last for 3-4 months, then a disease or somethint hits a healthy tank. Not much in tank, one pipe, crabs & starfish. Any info would help. Thx Michele

    This isn't really a "how-to" book but it is an amazing read.

    Those are unbelievable animals you have there! I am sooooo jealous.
