Oddly enough your 2 gallon plastic tank was probably just about an optimal habitat for a half dozen or so dwarf seahorses. Smaller tanks or more ponies seem to be preferred since it is necessary to saturate the water with food in order to get enough food into the seahorses. After that you just need to resolve the issue of having dumped a huge load of brine shrimp in a tiny tank and keeping the water quality up.

Also, can these guys take brine shrimp large than BBS(i.e, could you raise middling size BS to feed them).
Also, I have read that most people use BBS irregardless of its age and gut load them with vitamin supplements(can't think of the name) to provide essential amino acids.
I wonder if they could be kept in a large tank with high light, macroalgae, and a large invert population. I wonder just how dense the zooplankton is where these guys are found? Do they depend on planktonic or benthic forms for the most part? If the latter strong amphipod or copepod cultures could make BBS addition not as important.

Interesting note that while browsing that website, they sell searobins. That could be kinda cool in a decent size saltwater tank.
Not to derail but searobins are very very cool fish. They have huge mouths and love fish to eat but a really small one grows slow and stays small for awhile. Max size is over a foot though so big tank is better.
