Seahorses are not only interesting and beautiful fish to keep, but they are also relatively easy to care for if the proper conditions are provided. They should be kept in a species-only aquarium of at least 30 gallons for a single pair. The size should be increased by 10 gallons for each additional pair. Furthermore, it is important to keep the temperature in the aquarium below 74°F and to monitor and maintain the calcium and alkalinity levels. Regular maintenance such as removing detritus and uneaten food is also key to providing a healthy environment.

Seahorses are delicate animals and require a lot of care to ensure they live a healthy and happy life. Aquarists should carefully research each fish or invertebrate that they are considering keeping with their seahorse. Additionally, they should make sure to provide plenty of hiding places and feeding opportunities to keep their seahorse active and healthy.

Avoid fish that will out-compete the seahorse for food. These captive-bred seahorses are accustomed to frozen Mysis shrimp, making them a smart alternative to their wild-caught counterparts. They will also feed upon amphipods and other small crustaceans found in live rock. They are also accepting of adult brine shrimp, but this should not make up a majority of their diet. They are slow, deliberate feeders and prefer two or more small feedings per day.
