Feeding pipefish, baby's or adults isn't for the faint of heart. It does fall into the category of a labor of love. I had some success with Florida pipefish, and Jans' pipes some years back, and I can tell you it takes dedication. With Rachel having a steady supply of baby shrimp, she has a huge advantage on the process of keeping the adults. The fry are usually more accepting of things like BBS. I think we may be seeing our first batch of captive-bred FW pipes!
