    Put it this way.., what other choices do you have now? If you kinda want to keep it, then setup the other tank.

    Keep him in a temporary home and then give to someone with a fish only tank. They are great starfish if you have a fish only tank. Then go drop your garbage from your house on that guys step and tell him he can take f\your garbage in exchange for his.

    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!

    IMO, Seahorses should not be sold in stores. I know of people who have setup all kinds of livefood culturing tanks and such just to feed the horses and they STILL don't last all that long!!

    I've only met one guy who keeps seahorses alive for years and succesfully breeds them. The investment in time for research, and proper housing is usually more than most people would do...end result is, they die. This guy has proper tanks, and everything but people like this are par and few in between...for others...leave them in the ocean.
