Latest Pickup - Freshwater Pipefish

Recommended Posts

Latest Pickups that i was fortunate to pickup a month now. One of the best aquarium fish purchases I've ever made!

They are my pride and joy in the newly set-up fish-room.

Quite unexpectedly though after a couple of good weeks of feeding, unfortunately the female died from a bowel infection, the male seems to be doing well.

Enjoy the pics! Dave

Oh wow! I didn't realise there were freshwater pipe fishes. There should be freshwater seahorses. Lakehorses? Riverhorses?

I'm still upset Razzi laughed at me when I said I wanted a tank full of fresh water seahorses.

They're awesome! I've seen heaps of saltwater... I can't believe there are freshwater ones. Shame about the female :(

I'm pretty sure you'd have to keep them alone as they're really slow swimmers and would be easily outcompeted for food.

Well put, his tankmates include a bristlenose and 3 pregnant female guppies. :giggle:
