Coral Reef Fact:

Pipefishes or pipe-fishes (Syngnathinae) are a subfamily of small fishes, closely related to seahorses. “Young Pipefish are born freeswimming with relatively little or no yolk sac, and begin feeding immediately. From the time they hatch they are independent of their parents, who at that time may choose to view them as food.”
