    I was thinking of modifying a betta falls aquarium so that I could put 3 pairs of dwarf seahorses, one in each compartment, is this possible?

    Honestly, that's too small for anything really.
    I wouldn't keep seahorses in this tank.

    You could turn it into a shrimp tank. Or turn it into some kind of cool aquascape with no creature but shrimp in there.

    I wouldn't even keep bettas in that

    Dwarf seahorses would be far too sensitive for such a small amount of water. Space might not be a terrible issue, but it'd be impossible to get it stable enough for healthy seahorses.

    That said, there have been a few pico reefs set up in the betta falls tanks before. But, again, it's hard to keep stable.

    Okay I thought so, I was just wondering. How about the marineland portrait with some filter mods.

    Well, the marineland portrait is fine. But at that point, why not go with a standard 10 gallon for extra water volume? Dwarf seahorses are truly sensitive. You're gonna have to hatch baby brine and feed 2-3 times a day. That's a good way to foul water quality, and until you've learned how to do it well, I'd say that it'd be extremely difficult not to foul water in something less than 5-10 gallons.
