    That's a carnation coral. Beautiful NPS, I believe JJ has one in his wife's tank.

    expert only, need medium to strong flow, low light, and a constant food source as they are filter feeders only.

    So what your saying is a koralia, a wp25 on high and a wp10 on high in a 60 gallon tank is too much for a seahorse to thrive. Hmmmm, I challenge the no high flow for seahorse theory of yours.

    And a carnation will do fine in low flow as long as tank is maturely producing it's own constant source of plankton or you broadcast feed your tank regularly

    You have egg crate and corals somewhat blocking flow and to be blunt are being ignorant about seahorse care. Just because it is able to survive doesn't mean it will live long term or is happy. We strive to provide our fish/corals with a stress free enviroment. The thousands and thousands of articles written by marine biologists that have spent thousands and thousands of hours studying seahorses beg to differ on your idea of high flow in a 60 being ok for seahorses.

    First and foremost is the filter, there should be no air bubbles and a low flow rate (this does not necessarily mean low gph). Seahorses like a fairly turbulence free tank, and air bubbles can lead to the dreaded Gas Bubble Disease
