    Hey so I ordered a dwarf seahorse from this website and they said change a gallon a week so is there any Filter or tank that would mean I could use a filter because I don’t want it to suck up the seahorse

    If you don't already have a saltwater tank set up and cycled with a filter running you better find somebody else to take that fish when it arrives.

    What exactly was your question then? No filter will take the place of water changes. Water changes replenish minerals and other nutrients in the tank and removes waste byproducts.

    If you're worried about "sucking up" your seahorse in a siphon, scoop the water out instead, or put a coarse sponge or piece of netting over the tip of the siphon. And make sure you know where he is while you're doing it.

    I assume you mean Pygmy seahorse? A Dwarf won't work in a tank of that size. So do you have a tank setup and cycled yet? If not then there is a problem as you need to have a tank cycled so that it can handle the bioload.

    Well, I stand corrected then. No live rock in the tank.
