The Dwarf Seahorse requires a small, species-only aquarium and does best in groups of 4 or more. When maintaining only one or two Dwarf Seahorses, a 5-gallon aquarium is suitable; when maintaining more than 10 Dwarf Seahorses, use a 10 gallon aquarium. The smaller aquarium size helps concentrate the food. The aquarium should have a sponge filter.
The Dwarf Seahorse requires a continuous diet of freshly-hatched baby brine shrimp, copepods, and other shrimp larvae.
