Anyone keeping anything other then Pony's in your tanks? I have a new home for my pair
but its lookin a little bare with just 2 Pony's in the tank.

Pipe fish should be ok in there as similar requirements I believe.

I am considering a small Sea Horse tank, and this is also something I wonder... so gonna tag along.

Yea Pipefish you can do. I had a smaller clown in with them and it wasn't as bad as everyone makes out. The clown left the Pony's alone but it was nice as he cleaned up the mysis they didn't eat. He has gone to a new home. But I'd like to put something else in for the same purpose.

Here is a very good article on Seahorse tankmates with a complete compatibility list http://www.fusedjaw.com/aquariumcare/seahorse-tankmates-whats-safe-whats-not/.

Thanks Rod. Looks like I'll have to hit up some online websites to put an order in. Anyone in The Hat want/need to do a livestock order??? :)

Out of all the different fish and inverts I've put in with seahorses, my fav is the (red) scooter blenny. It's pretty neat looking and with the small mouth it won't pester the horses.

+1 on a Red scooter blenny with Seahorses.

cathyg 99,

Seahorses are neat, but require at least two feedings a day of thawed mysis. No dosing needed. But it is a real commitment.

You really need to do your homework if you are considering them. Lots of good info out there.
