    well its been months since ive been on,so just an update,i picked up a 14g biocube last week and put 20lbs black live sand and 12 lbs of fresh live rock fully cycled as well as adding aged filter floss from my already existing 75g to boost the bacteria and faster cycle time

    Get dwarfs. Other then that, love the tank! I have the 29g one :). How many GPH is the pump for the 14? Seahorses don't like a lot of flow

    not sure how much flow but sure its around 100 gph,was only going to get dwarves everything else is to big,i been figuring out how to change the flow by diverting it in a couple dif directions by puting something in the output,not sure yet i got time to play with it though

    Not sure how much the corals would like the lesser flow though. Lots to think about.

    Are they the dwarf ones? If so, are they eating frozen? If not, what are you feeding them? My buddy has like 30 of them that he sells for 10$ a piece, and if there is a good food substitute besides live brine shrimp, I'd pick some up!

    I'm sorry about your seahorses. Maybe you can put the mantis out of your tank. You could try trap it.
