Re: Hippocampus Erectus Input
What kind of overflow do you use? I can't imagine getting a sump on this thing for a while, but I've got enough macro algae that I think I can keep nitrates under control with a proper skimmer.
I still wanna get a breeding pair of erectus with cirri (like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pfmviyTw6M
) but I do like the idea of a pipefish.
I'd considered the banded and dragonface as well, and they should be capable of eating foods of comparable size, though I'd considered starting a few cultures of rotifers, plankton, pods, and even shrimp so I'm not opposed to feeding any kind of food. Eventually, after I've had more experience with gorgonians, I'd even like to try a blueberry seafan, though that will not happen till next year at the soonest.
