The offspring of Halicampus punctatus are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Halicampus punctatus, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Halicampus punctatus, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Very special thanks for the first two photos of the Starry pipefish to Izuzuki Diver, Japan.
