We’ve been rearing yellow-banded pipefish (Doryrhamphus pessuliferus) behind the scenes for possible future exhibit. Look closely, and you can see that this male is carrying eggs!
We have five gulf pipefish in the dwarf seahorse exhibit! This species is found in seagrass beds around the Gulf of Mexico and the West Atlantic coast of Florida. We occasionally get babies that come in with the live mysids that we purchase to feed to various animals around the Aquarium. We raised the babies and put some on exhibit, who then had babies of their own! Learn more about our Secret Lives of Seahorses exhibit.
