Hi there, I've been wanting to dive into the world of dwarf sea horses for a while now. I was recently given this 2.65 us gal 360 marina tank http://www.seahorseaquariums.com/Marina-360-Degree-10L/6290 I wanted to ask whether this would be suitable to turn into a dwarf sea horse tank. If so how many pairs would you recommend... I'm hearing different answers any where from 4 to 10 pairs... and what modifications (if any) would you recommend for this tank to be suitable (filter, heater, light etc) Many thanks in advance
Hello. I'm very excited because after years of grueling reaserch I think I've finally found a dwarf seahorse design I think will work for these guys.Tank: tall ,10 gallons with a sponge filterFood: Baby brine shrimp (enriched) Hatched daily out of 4 soda bottle hatcheriesDecorations: Sand, ?macroalge and artificial decorThe enite tank will be treated with panceurI was thinking about getting 3 pairs of DSH's and some type of clean up crew. I'd appreciate advice from an expirenced dwarf keeper in regards to what type of clean up crew works best.I was thinking probably narcissus snails.I'd of course do everything very slowly and cycle my tank. Thank you for your imput.
Hello all! My 3 gallon is now at the point that I feel comfortable starting a journal about it. Here goes nothing! Initial setup: Lights: 49 watts worth of a generic LED outputting 50% 10000k and about 35% 460nm Filter: A generic internal filter at 160 GPH filled with seachem matrix (eventually going to start adding tiny amounts of vodka to encourage the growth of denitrifying bacteria) Heater: Generic 50W heater Fauna: None yet but will likely include a pom pom crab or two. Unsure on the fish front. Considering getting a photosynthetic sponge carried by gulf coast ecosystems. Corals: Again none yet, TBD if I will have any. Macroalgae: Caulerpa prolifera, Gracilaria parvispora and hayi, coralline algae. All are thriving and start producing oxygen bubbles within an hour of the lights going on (a timer keeps the lights on from 1 to 9 pm). Here is a picture of my tank. Hope you enjoy it!
