Aquarium / Pics (Finally) of My Seahorses
« Last post by SaltyInNJ on 2 months ago »
I want to thank everyone for their advice and feedback during my planning process.  It's already been a year since I received my 3 seahorses from Seahorse Source.  I ordered 3 females, but as some of you mentioned, one changed to a male and has mated with one of the females.  They are producing fry on a consistent basis the past few months.  I am currently researching how to raise fry and think I will take a shot at it soon.  But anyway, the seahorses have grown a lot and I am grateful to be able to see them grow.
Anyway, here are some recent pics;

Misc Seahorse & Syngnathid Info / Re: Eels and Pipefish

As some species of pipefish are small even as adults I suspect they might be.

Would an adult pair of pipefish be of harm.  The eel will be around 10inches.

As they are considered to be fish eaters, I would hazard a guess that smaller pipefish will be a problem with them as they mature to full size especially.

Hey guys I was just wondering if keeping a yellow banded pipefish pair with a Golden dwarf moray is safe.  I know that you usually don't keep eels with pipefish, but these eels are usually more peaceful.  Would this be ok? What do you guys think?

Hi fb123!  I am a seahorse keeper and so am not as up on pipefish.  However 3 years ago when I first began keeping syngnathids I wanted both, and I wanted captive bred.  At that time after researching, the only captive bred pipefish I could find were banded flagfin pipes offered by Ocean Rider.  They did well for me for about 2 years which I am reading is about the normal lifespan for most pipefish.  That was 3 years ago and perhaps someone has mastered raising other species but I am not aware of it.

Hi, I'm looking for a breeder, preferably near NYC, that raises (and is willing to sell) captive-bred Northern pipefish, Syngnathus fuscus.

Some background: I am trying to breed wild-caught S. fuscus pipefish (from Long Island in NY). I am finding that many pipefish do not eat the enriched hatched Artemia, and they seem to generally be in mediocre health shortly after arriving to tanks. I do not believe water quality is an issue, as local killifish from the same environment were collected with these pipefish are are faring very well. I think my issue is wild-caught animals are just finicky eaters.
