Husbandry

Very special thanks for the first photo of this beautiful Spotted Xenia-pipefish / Herre's Pipefish (Siokunichthys herrei) to Albert Kang, Philippines.
Albert has taken his photo of this gorgeous little pipefish in a depth of 14 -15 meters, water temperature 28°C. - 29°C.

Herre's Pipefish lives in colonies of Xenia sp., scientists suppose, that this pipefish may be dependent upon soft corals of the genus Xenia.
Unfortunately there are no further informations about its biology, ecology or population size.

Referring to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species there are records from the northern Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba too.
Currently it is not clear whether these specimens from the Red Sea are different due to clinal variation or if they actually represent another species that is yet to be described, may be these specimens could perhaps be Siokunichthys bentuviai.
