Black Seahorse

The Black Seahorse is one of the hardier seahorses and is best kept in a 20 gallon or larger tank with non-competitive tankmates. Seahorses are poor swimmers and need to be fed frequently. They are easier to feed in small aquariums because food density will be greater. Because of the frequent feedings, close attention to water quality will be required. They thrive as mated pairs or in groups. Seahorses are not to be housed with anemones or stinging corals as they will latch on to them with their tails. Will accept live brine shrimp and may be trained to eat frozen mysis and cyclop-eeze. Make sure food is in the water for at least 20 minutes at a time.
