Question 2 new SH tanks, questions.

i have a 12 gal aquapod, hoping to house either 2 regular horses (prolly yellow) or about 6 dwarf horses. my other tank is a 30 gal tall with 15 gal sump and euroreef skimmer, with buncha softies. in this i'm hopint to house 4 regular horses, 2 black / 2 yellow or 2 red and 2 yellow. now my question is... what would i need to add in the tank? both tanks have little flow... i dont have any stinging corals (i do but i'ma take em out and put them in my 20 gal SPS), what am i going to feed them? brine shrimp? i cant "make my own stuff" so i have to buy it. how bout the dwarf horses? what do i feed those? how big do the dwarfs get? how small are they usually? what temprature should i keep them at? 76?78F? thanks.

Dwarf horses need live brine shrimp and if you get horses from (oceanrider) or or some other Captive Bred Seahorse..they will eat Frozen Mysis Shrimp IMHO a 12g. Aquapod is just to small for anything but Dwarf seahorses and maybe Capensis.. anyway read up on here and hth

-30g. Oceanic Cube Cuttlefish Reef
-90g. Mixed Reef
-14g Biocube FW planted tank
-10g. frag tank (soon)

Current Tank Info: 90g. Reef, 30g. Cube cuttlefish reef

What fishfreak218 said. With anything other than dwarves in the 12g you will have both a water quality and space issue with anything larger.
