Mushroom Coral Pipefish
Siokunichthys nigrolineatus

Mushroom Coral Pipefish are one of the hardest critters to film, for four reasons…

1. They are small.
2. They are white, making it very hard to film without blowing them out.
3. They live at the bottom of Mushroom Coral, in amongst their long polyps.
4. And they never stop moving!!!!

They are a very lovely pipefish, completely white, expect for a red line that runs through their eyes. They also have funny upturned mouths.

As their name suggest, they live exclusively in Mushroom Corals. Here we usually only see one in a coral, so it was very nice to find two sharing one small home.
