I would love trying to breed fw pipefish just not sure how they would do with the small chilis and shrimp. My marine pipefish would harass my larger shrimp but never bothered my sexy shrimp. Shrimplets would be walking snacks I am sure.

I have them in with shrimp as feeders, so I do know they will happily eat the youngest ones, lol.

Hi Rachel,

How do you keep pipefish alife? For what I read, it needs a lot of small life food readily available all the time. I'd like to order some, I'm just nor sure I can care for them properly. Is it hard?

All 4 of these are awesome, Butterfly barbs are neat, the Badis are looking real good.

I am feeding the white worms and baby brine (the new babies anyway). The adutls are in with baby shrimp and being supplemented with brine shrimp.

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!

Even though I am not interested in keeping pipefish I love following your adventures. How big are the babies?

Thank you very much, guys!

I guess, I'll pass on them then. I'm very much interested in scarlet badis females and in any other darios, in stiphodon gobies, in elassoma gilberty.

Thank you!

How big are the adult pipefish?

Trying to justify adding them to my nanofish collection
