Be careful with that seahorse and the LPS, they can and most likely will sting the sea horse. (Shouldn't have LPS in a tank with a seahorse anyways.)

That's really cool. How much flow do you have? (do you have to compromise with the sea horse and corals?)

I see the firefish poking his head in the last picture...

Approximately how much money did you put in this project? I want to make my empty 30 gallon tank a saltwater, but want to know how much money i have to put in.

Nice aquascaping...but one thing I noticed is you dont have much Coraline Algea growth.
Your live rock should be covered in Purple macro algae after a year of being setup. Have
you checked your Calcium and Magnesium levels?

It took about 3 months for my live rock to be covered in Coraline Purple algae.

Also that is not a proper setup for a Seahorse. Seahorses like very low flow and more
of a Mangrove / Kelp setup... You have corals that require alot of flow and not many
places for the seahorse to escape it...
