How much do you think the pipefish will be going for? I love the way they look and if I got them I'd definitely be interested in breeding them.

The next batch will be f1- i lost my babies I went out for a day and lost my current babies. They could not miss the few feedings. These fish WILL require extremely frequent live feedings.

Oh nevermind. They require special feedings and probably a species only tank. I have plenty of shrimp for them to feast on though lol.

You would be AMAZED at how many shrimp these guys can eat!!!! I have added 300 berried females so far, and there is NO sign of ANY young surviving, lol. They eat almost constantly.

They are very very very very difficult. I only hope they survive my absence when I travel to Bermuda this month.
