Husbandry

(Herald, 1953)

Halicampus brocki is a whitish to yellowish pipefish with short skin flaps on the body and longer branched filaments in the head.
Some individuals are brown with pale saddles along the back.

This slender, reef-dwelling pipefish is solitary and secretive/cryptic and lives among corals and weeds.

Adult pipefishs occur in lagoon and seaward reefs, at moderate depths from 3 to 45 meters.
