I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Feeding a wild pipe fish fry is going to be extremely difficult. The diet may be something you can't provide. If you're planning to release it, I would do so in the same place it came from as soon as possible. BBS is probably a good guess if it will eat for you, but you may find that stress will take over and no matter what you offer, it simply won't eat. There is also a big risk to your fish with disease issues now, so keep your eyes peeled for any signs of parasites, especially. It is also very possible that the moving from wild to home and back to wild again will kill that fish. Pipes are as delicate as seahorses, and the stress of all the moving and environmental changes so quickly will cause extreme amounts of stress. Good luck to you and your fish. I hope the next time you take a fish from the wild you have a quarantine tank set up before hand, and are sure it is legal to take that fish. Many places have heavy restrictions on taking wild fish without the proper permits.
