Grass Ghost Pipefish in Komandoo Lagoon

30 Jan 2010

We saw last days an ornate ghost pipefish in the house reef of Komandoo. Today we have found these two grass ghost pipefish in the lagoon. At barely two meters of depth, these two creatures, close relatives to the previous ornate ghost pipefish, always hang head-down searching for some tiny invertebrate prey. It’s not unusual to find them in pairs, though this couple might have been together for quite some time as they seem to be looking in different directions…???
