    Hello Forum,

    i live in Germany (there are no ceph-forums). I have got a 400 gal. reef-tank and a second one of 80 i use for my seahorses. The tank setup seems to be nearly the same like an octopus tank.

    My Quastion:
    I would like to know if someone has kept an octopus together with Hippocampus Reidi and Hippocampus Comes in one tank before?

    Please excuse my bad English, i´m trying hard!

    Looking forward to your replies and thanks a lot!

    Best wishes

    Kristof

    My immediate thought would be that seahorses will probably make great food.

    I agree with Fini, an octopus would think of those seahorses as little delicious snacks. And welcome!

    Hi Forum,

    thanks a lot. Your posts are very helpfull.

    I think i will not try it out.

    My kids will kill me if someone i put in the tank will kill the seahorses.

    So i have to talk to my wife, to setup another tank (that will be my death too :grin: )


    Best wishes

    Kristof,

    If you tell your wife the new tanks is because of the kids she may allow you to survive :wink:
