The beautiful Bay Pipefish! They are in the Sygnathiformes family and as such, are cousins to seahorses. These little guys hang out in eelgrass — a habitat which sequesters three times more CO2 than a rain forest per square foot! And alike seahorses, the males are the ones who give birth. Badass. So here’s a pipefish to empower all the bopo, nurture-inclined males out there. #bopo#pipefish#ilovefish

Yesterday i made the easiest 30$ of my life haha. Getting called out to a a recovery mission, to find a pair of keys that has been dropped in the mid-Copenhagen channels. I’m always up for a adventure, perhaps this I have never tried. We got some hazards to keep in mind. •
First of all, it is probably one of the most polluted places in Denmark. Solutions to this are being considered by the Danish government and other conservations. But still a lot of pollution can lead to a disgusting death. Go ahead and ask the sea turtles. They know all about getting wrapped and choked by trash🐢 •
Second of all. It is one of the most active channels in Denmark. Boats are speeding around and can lead to instant death if hit by one☝🏻 •
And 3rd of all. Silt and mud. With only little light under the harbor and a bottom to fall through can be fatal. To loose the sense of direction and op’n’down can lead to a serious problem. + the keys can’t be recovered without a metal detector because of the bottom. But I have one, so no problem there. •
At last. The visibility is 0,5 meter. Very limited and dark. ••••••••
Besides all of this. We descended. Looked at the bottom. Saw the key sticking up juuuust a tiny bit. Recovered it. And ascended. Took us not even a minute. The owner was happy and gave me 30 bucks. I’m happy. Easiest 30$ of my life hahah. Super fun experience and are looking forward to find more stuff for people, to earn 30$ hahaha

💋kissing cousins💋 And it’s all in the nose 👃. The seahorse and the pipefish are both in the “syngnathid” family, which is a Greek name meaning “fused jaw.” These critters use their distinctive snouts to strike and suck prey. This is one of the many facts shared on our Teachers on the Bay trip last week! Special thanks to Norah Carlos, CBF staff member (not in the syngnathid family) for this great image. In the background is Luke Scott, Fox Island assistant manager and avid syngnathid observer. Fun facts from socialindc.com. @thesnores@cbf_learnoutside@natgeocreative#savebay#sustainability#outsideonline#cleanwater#instafish#seahorse#pipefish#socialindc
Beim letzten Tauchen in Zeeland hat mich
diese kleine Seenadel so schön angeschaut :-) Canon EOS 5DS R
Long nosed pipefish.
Saw one last year that was black. Cute little guy. Swipe to see more

These lovely little pipefish were hanging out on Rawa Wreck. They’re shy and wriggly but very cute!😍

The conditions have been so beautiful the last few days so we were super disappointed to see an algal bloom had completely ruined the viz today. We continued regardless -expecting a boring dive but with a change in perspective, and being forced to focus on things in our immediate space, we found some beautiful creatures.
This is an incredibly lucky picture of the TINEST baby pipefish that was almost impossible to focus on until it was on the neutral background of @aani_crab ‘s hand.
So very very cute. .
Probably one of the rarest pipefish in the underwater world is the Xenia Coral Pipefish. We have seen them only twice in all our diving career. Once at Sangeang Volcano and the second time at Pink Beach in Komodo National Park. Xenia Coral is a great host for many tiny creatures - crabs, shrimps, pipefish and more.
