What about these seahorse?

Well, today I went to the lfs and they had these huge yellow and orange seahorses, I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of seahorse they were. The guy at the fish store said he thought it was brazillian?

I am getting a 20 gallon high tank and I was wondering what you can keep with seahorses?

What do they eat?

Can you keep small gobies?

They were at least 6" and really beautiful.

H. Reidi, yes Brazillian. I have two bar gobies and a coral banded shrimp as tankmates.

PE mysis shrimp, ghost shrimp, enriched brine shrimp

That looks like them.

How many do you have? Are they hard to take care of? What size tank do you have? is a 20g high tank good?

How long have you kept the CBS.

I have read mixed reviews on them but am still kind of afraid to try one out. They are my favorite shrimp ATM, and the local aquarium does have one in there display tanks, just wondering what your experiences are.

120g mixed reef
90g QT
