    Not tropical, but I would love to share them with my friends here on APSA. My brother recently brought home these beautiful little monsters for me to look after they are Tiger tail seahorses ("Hippocampus comes"

    Sorry only got back to the office now.
    Riaan it’s a Boyo Nano LT450. Small system with a little skimmer, pump, UV and heater.
    My brother bought it not too long ago from a guy on one of the marine forums. I feed small amount about 5 times a day with Brine shrimp, Mysis, Copepods and krill. The two tiger tails has the company of a snail and a small jelly fish. Luckily the tank is behind my desk so it makes it a lot easier with feedings and gives me some eye candy if I need a break from work. (Although its standing next to my Brothers big Marine it still draws my more as the ponies are my babies.)
    Thank Alwyn! They are stunning little monsters.

    There is a lovely article on these here somewhere (sorry, I'm not sure which magazine). I would love keeping them!

    Thanks Icarus, will definately go and have a look.
    It was a sad day for me on Friday as the one :'( died, they were not in the best condition when I got them and I have tried lots but the one kept pining away. I already started looking for a new friend for Yellow as it’s just not the same with one in the tank.
    Will keep you guys posted on my babies.
