Don't want to spend time trying to figure out how to get a seahorse tank started? We have done the work for you!
Our starter kits include the equipment and supplies we recommend to get started. The kits DO NOT include the aquarium tank - because tanks are difficult to ship we recommend purchasing a basic 30 or 50 gallon aquarium tank from your local fish store (number of tank gallons may vary based on the manufacturer). You may also want to purchase live rock and aquarium decor. Our kits will supply everything else you need to house your seahorses!
We offer kits with equipment and supplies configured for two sizes of tanks:
- 30 Gal Seahorse Tank Starter Kit - Equips a 30 Gallon Aquarium for 2 Seahorses
- 50 Gal Seahorse Tank Starter Kit - Equips a 50 Gallon Aquarium for 4 Seahorses
