Ghost Pipefish Fighting

« posted: 4 years ago »
This is a pretty cool video of two male pipefish fighting over a female:

I've never seen that behavior before; they are normally fond in pairs in the wild. It's not clear if this means they change partners, or if this is just normal tussling over a female, and happens all the time.
