Captive Bred Blue Stripe Pipefish
This is for a single captive bred Blue Stripe Pipefish, Doryrhamphus excisus
Size: 1.5-2 inches
We are super excited to offer captive bred Blue Stripe pipefish!!! Please ready care information below:
We are currently feeding them live enriched Artemia nauplii (baby brine shrimp) and frozen Calanus. They can be converted to frozen Mysis shrimp but we feed them primarily live enriched baby brine shrimp since we have this available at our farm and they are small fish. In an established aquarium they will also graze on copepods. They are a small species only reaching 1.5-2.5 inches as adults and do not have a high food demand like large seahorses.
Very limited availability. We expect them to move quickly. This is the only available batch at this time.
NOTE: This species can be kept with our captive bred seahorses. Blue Stripes are a very small pipefish species so make sure they will not go through your overflows on your aquarium! If you plan on having them in their own aquarium a 10 gallon minimum aquarium size is recommended, larger is even better. We recommend housing this species individually or as a male and female pair. This species is very likely to be aggressive towards its own species of the same sex!!
