    These guys are like a seahorse. I would say it should be kept in a species only tank. Definately low water flow. They usually eat live freshwater grass shrimp no problem, but not very good for them. The saltwater feeders are great for them if you can get them!

        I have never kept this fish but I know someone that keeps many pipefish in a sps dominated tank with Tunze wave box, several Tunze streams, and a very large surge system and they seem to do quite well. I've seen them play in the surge and the streams. They are better swimmers than we give them credit for.

          Nick, no they are not. They are the dragonfacepipefish. Supposedly teh alligator is a little hard to keep since you have to feed him live food unlike the banded pipefish.
