Husbandry

(Günther, 1873)

Very special thanks for the first photo of the rare pipefish to Dr. Gerry R. Allen.
Dr. Allen has Taken this photo at Anilao, Luzon, Philippines a depthrange of 1 - 20 mets.

The Glittering Pipefish are easily recognised with their distinctive zebra-like pattern of dark brown and silvery-white bands encircling the head and body.

Halte diese Seenadeln seit ca einem Jahr. Sehr friedliche, ruhige und zugleich neugierige Beckenbewohner. Nachts ziehen sie sich in meine Rumphella-Gorgonie oder zwischen die Krustenanemonen zum Schlafen zurück. Im Handel sind sie normalerweise nicht zu finden. Ich hatte damals jedoch Glück und konnte direkt nach einem Import 2 Tiere erwerben. Sie lieben Kleinstfutter wie Copepoden (lebend/frost), Lobstereier und auch Plankton. Untereinander sind sie sehr harmonisch, ähnlich der C.intestinalis. Tolle Tiere :-)
