What type of aquarium should be selected for seahorses?


Seahorses can be easily housed in acrylic or glass home aquariums. 

As a guide, use a 30 gallon aquarium for two seahorses, a 50 gallon tank for four seahorses and a 75 tank for six seahorses.  Because seahorses swim upright, use a tall aquarium at least 18 inches high. 

Biocube aquariums and vertical display aquariums work well.  Aquarium kits can be purchased as an easy way to start a seahorse tank.  Custom aquariums can also be designed to enhance the display of seahorses.
