Opting for 2 for now. Thanks all.

They are cool, though. I don't know if you are old enough, but these are the ones that used to be advertised in the back of comic books in the 1970s.

Wow $2 for a mated pair. Sounds like a steal.

My recommendation is to use nature as a general resource for compatibility in any close systems as most of the time lessons learned from nature are the most sustainable solutions in any marine systems. Even to the extent you may be an expert, in that case this approach may be “doable” but not recomended, not sustainable on a long-term basis because the needs seahorses and that of corals are mutually exclusive to each other an may eventually catch up with you, I recommend you set up a separate tank (or avoid idea altogether if you are a beginner) for seahorses as they have very unique requirements and are not easily achieved in a closed system, even in isolated perfect conditions in closed environments.
