Bay Pipefish (Syngnathus leptorhynchus)

Coldwater Marine Aquatics recommends you keep these animals in 55F-60F water.

The Bay Pipefish (Syngnathus leptorhyncus) is a pipefish native to the eelgrass beds of the Eastern Pacific (Southern Baja California to Gulf of Alaska), where its sinuous shape and green color allow it to blend in with the waving blades of eelgrass. Like other members of the seahorse family, male pipefish tend the eggs laid by their female partners in specialized pouches.
