Long Mouth Pipefish
Pipefish are unusual looking ambush predators, and share many characteristics with the seahorse. Their long skinny body looks like sticks in the pond, and these fish will float near their prey and whip their mouth to the right or left and grab it. Pipefish can handle freshwater but prefer a slight amount of salt in the water. Pipefish can also handle brackish water. This species will do well in small tanks as well as large, and are peaceful with other fish that cannot fit into their long narrow jaws.
