Found singly on sandy bottoms with corals and sponges, sometimes in algae covered rubble reef zones. They attach to anything they can get their tail around, even each other usually close to the bottom to blend in with their surroundings. They feed on tiny swimming invertebrates which they suck whole into their mouths.

Seahorses like Pipefish are unique in that the male gives birth! The female deposits their eggs after fertilization into the males pouch to incubate the eggs for one month before giving birth.
Seahorses are a threatened species because it is sought after for Chinese medicine.
