Banded Pipefish are from the Indo-Pacific Region of the Ocean. Banded Pipefish grow to around 8 inches at full length, and should be kept in an aquarium of at least 50 gallons in size to provide this fish with plenty of swimming and living room. Banded Pipefish are carnivores and should be fed a steady diet of brine shrimp, baby guppies, grass shrimp, mosquito larvae, and many other meaty preparations for best possible health. Banded Pipefish can be difficult to care for, and we only recommend that the advanced aquarium owner care for this fish.
