Banded Pipefish

Facts and Information

banded pipefish

Pipefish are micropredators, feeding all day long on small crustacean foods found in the passing plankton.  They do best in quiet, peaceful tanks with similarly natured fishes and should be offered food several times throughout the day.  Feeding is stimulated by movement and dry or frozen preparations are unlikely to be taken.  Seahorses make suitable tank mates and they often hitch a ride on pipefish, much to the pipefish`s annoyance.  Live marine plants in the tank like Caleurupa help to uptake undesirable nutrients like nitrate and provide shade and shelter for the shy pipefish.
