    Hello, I am currently in the process of planning a tank upgrade, and I am musing over potential inhabitants. Namely pipefish. My concern however is I currently have 4 elegance corals which I will be moving over. Basically I am curious if the pipefish will become a snack. If anyone has any...

    New build time! I've never done a build thread - all of my other tanks are super simple, no "building" to them. :p This one will be very little building, but it'll be a slow going project so I thought I'd share. :) Unfortunately my favorite LFS has decided to close. I'm the proud new owner of...
  6. Seahorses & Pipefish
    Hi, I am looking to collect a bunch of pipefish species (Bay pipefish, kelp pipefish, and any others) in the Southern California area. I see from old records at the Scripps Institute that Mission Bay was a very popular area for all of the pipefish species, but this was back in the 1940's and...

    hi! so I went to get frag glue at my lfs today and fell in love with the banded pipefish there. Reading online, it says they are expert only. If I bought pods, can I dump the whole live bag in the tank and will they thrive? Has anyone ever bought a bag of live pods and dumped them in once a...
  8. Seahorses & Pipefish
    I'm mulling over the idea of starting up a seahorse tank as my newest project since multiple family members have been wanting me to stick some in my reef, but I feel as though that's out of the question with my current inhabitants. I am curious as to whether I could mix a larger seahorse (or a...

    My build is in my Sig... I'm going to be trading some coral for a pair of dragon faced pipefish (I hope). From what I've read I should be fine with these in my tank... But, any suggestions or advice/experience to share with me? I do have two separate pod farms and a blackworm farm... One...

    I have a 20 gallon tank set up that I made "pod ready" as in I seeded it over a month and a half ago with with c and a pods. I put in over 2000. I was wondering if it would be safe to get 4 dwarf seahorses and 2 baby pipe fish now or should I wait. When I order them I'll be ordering another 2000...

    I was planning my future pipefish-dedicated tank and was wondering how to set up a refugium for cultivating pods without them being chopped up by the skimmer Thanks!

    My dragonface pipefsh has been in my tank for about 2 weeks now and just this morning I noticed its snout was red. The lights were not on yet and I have a cyano bloom in my tank, so I thought it just looked like that because of all the red in my tank. Well after the daylights and actinics were...

    Hey everyone in my tank I currently have one blue stripe pipefish and this weekend at the aquarium expo I am hoping to find another one. After doing research on them I found out that males will not tolerate one another and that even females are aggressive towards each other. After looking at my...

    How much bio-load do pipefish have? I was wondering if I would be over stocking if I put in two pipefish instead of one along w/ a pair of clowns, blenny, dwarf angel, cardinalfish, and a chromis that I already have?
