Husbandry

Fistularia petimba (Lacepède, 1803)

Fistularia petimba, is a pipefish better known as the Red Cornetfish, found in tropical oceans worldwide, at depths between 10 and 200 m. Mostly in the sublittoral zone, inhabits coastal areas over soft bottoms, usually at depths greater than 10 m.

The Red Cornetfish has a variation of color, which ranges in: pink, pale brown, yellow, and a greenish tinge. Some characteristics are its silvery underside, bony plates along the midline, and its long tubular snout, which by the way, makes up a quarter of its length. It usually reaches lengths of 1.50 to 1.80 meters. The body is cylindrical and very thin. It has a striking, long-drawn-out tubular snout.

Fistularia petimba don’t have a very big variety of food. They mainly stick to small fish and shrimp- although; there is a predator after them, the macrofauna. To avoid being eaten by this predator, the Fistularia petimba often rides on top of other species, and they are also use camouflage.
