If you have never kept a saltwater tank, you should first consider starting out with "regular" fish before going headlong with seahorses. Also, freshwater experience doesn't automatically count since I know a lot of FW tank owners that know just the bare minimum to keep their fish from dying and not much more. They have specific needs, such as low flow and somewhat tedious feeding requirements. This is a very good source for seahorse info, especially their library and forum:

Here's a link to a site for water parameters. For seahorses, feed daily copepods ( you cannot rely on auto feeders) and make sure you have lots of planted material for them to hold onto. Peaceful in a reef setting but no anemone or anything else that can sting them.
