Talking Pipefish Picture Thread!

Ok, I'm going to be ordering a DragonFace Pipefish pretty soon so I was hoping that people could post pics of their pipes. It doesn't matter what species it is as long as it's a pipefish.

After doing a little research it appears that scapes pipefish is an unidentified species only known by its common name as the diamond or carribean pipefish.

Actually it might be a gulf pipefish (Syngnathus scovelli).

after some searching, I found that Marinedepotlive.com has the banded pipefish for $14 and the Janss' pipefish for $26.40. I want to say I got my "unknown" for about $3-$5. can't remember.

I've seen a couple different tanks that mixed different species of pipefish and they all seemed to be doing fine.

I have gotten all my pipefish from the LFS ( I would first see if they have any or can special order you some). I would recommend liveaquaria.com to buy your pipefish at, they have a good variety and thier animals seem to be very healthy. Right now I have my bluestripe in with my multibanded and they seem to ignore each other. What ever your choice, good luck.

I would think 2, That would be the max. Just do plenty of water changes.
