ROBUST GHOST PIPEFISH (30mm) por Sonja Ooms
This uncommon species is found in coastal reefs and weedy areas or lagoon reefs, often on algal flats or seagrass beds. Monogamous, always in pairs. Females carry the eggs in their pelvic fins that are modified to form a brood pouch. Feed on small crustaceans. This one is a red young female variation, relatively rare.
