Ornate Ghost Pipefish

Solenostomus paradoxus


The ghost pipefish has variable colors probably determined by their surroundings. This individual was a male due to the lack of a brooding pouch. Interestingly scientists believe that all individuals are males until based on some environmental or social cues change into females. It is interesting to observe them feeding on small crustaceans.


Crinoids, black corals, gorgonians, or soft corals.
