You cannot keep a seahorse in a tropical tank. Guppies an platys are both tropical freshwater fish. A seahorse is a saltwater fish, this just wouldn't work. To keep a seahorse you would need to set up a whole new tank and make it saltwater, this is very hard to do. No offense, but if you don't know a seahorse is a marine animal you probably don't have enough fish keeping experience to maintain a salt tank. If you want to add more fish to your tank there's a lot you can choose from. Mollies, swordtails, tetras, loaches, snails, and many other peaceful tropical fish can be added. Just make sure your tank is big enough so you don't overstock it. A general rule, that doesn't apply to all cases, is one inch of fish (adult size) per gallon of tank. So if you have a 10 gallon with 4 guppies and 2 platys only one or two more small fish could be added. You'll also want to make sure they're not aggressive fish that will eat your guppies. Hope I could help!

I follow Sidereal. All I can say is do your research. Sidereal is the original astrology and is precise whereas Tropical is based upon mathematical concepts only and is 25 degrees off. Sidereal is based off of the exact fixed positions of the planets. Tropical is more popular in Western culture but if you went to China, Sidereal is the norm over there and they don't follow Tropical at all. It all depends on where you are in the world. Hope this helps you!!

Seahorses are marine invertebrates and cannot survive in a freshwater tank. Pardon me on the mistake. "Marine" was the important aspect of that answer - whether it is an invert or a fish is really of no importance in this question.

seahorses are delicate marine (saltwater) fish (not inverts!?!), if you put them in that tank they would die in a matter of minutes. you have a freshwater tank. http://www.seahorses.de/seahorses.htm they are not super easy to keep in captivity, especially if you have no experience of marine.

My family was looking to stay at Iberostar but we chose a cruise instead. We didn't want to go to Mexico because of the crime and murders going on. After researching many resorts in many different countries I have only found two resorts that I would really like to stay at... Beaches Turks and Caicos looks really nice. They have a waterpark and water activities are included in the all inclusive price. Atlantis, Bahamas. Their waterpark is huge with many thrill seeking waterslides. They also have a beach but the hotels are not all inclusives. Also the grounds are packed with people not only from hotels but from cruises. I have also heard good things about Punta Cana. Of course cruise ships are a choice. My family rathers cruises because it stops at many different tropical spots rather then staying at one resort for a week. The new cruise ships are packed with activities and are huge! Newer Royal Caribbean ships are really nice. The oasis of the seas, allure of the seas, freedom of the sees and liberty of the seas and are amazing ships with clubs and games on the pool deck. Also the Norwiegn Epic, Disney Dream and Carnival Dream have waterparks onboard.
