Seahorses anyone?

I’m just starting to read up, money and time not an issue but I’d like a cube tank. So height rather than length. Thought seahorses would be fab. Anyone keep them? Pros and cons?

Thanks, I’m not experienced but I always research hard and home properly.

I would recommend starting with a more basic marine system, with hardier marine fish first. Learn how to maintain and balance that with fish who are more forgiving to little mistakes! After a year or two of that (it takes about a year for a good marine tank to really mature and come into it's own), then maybe go down the seahorse route. Make sure they're captive bred of course.
