Dragon face pipefish with anemones


Recommended Posts

I've got a 30 gallon with a small/medium (softball sized when fully extended) RBTA and three rock anemones. My flow isn't that strong, I've got a koralia nano and a HOB filter that provides turnover.


I have seen this particular fish do well in mixed reef environments, but my biggest concern would be the RBTA. Anyone have personal experience?

Dragonface spend most of their time on the sand. But if you want my personal opinion, I wouldn't put any pipefish with any nem, mostly because I'm afraid the nem would either eat them or sting them. This is just my opinion however.

I'd avoid that. I think stinging things and slow moving pipefish don't really go together. I feel they could end up as food as was mentioned by another member. :/ Ask in Albert Thiel's thread?

Damn. Was hoping for someone to say "NAW, you're good, go for it!" buuuut I already pretty much knew that a pipefish would just be nem-noms.


Thanks for all the input!
