Sea Dragons ???

hi,
this post is about sea dragons, im not sure if they are found in america but im from australia and they are common around my area and was wondering if anyone has had success with keeping them and what methods of feeding do you use.

Amazing to watch in the wild.


Its a shame also when they are found dead by blue bottles, happens really easily for them as well.

Thread moved to appropriate section as these specimens are neither corals nor invertebrates.

Not quite as gorgeous as that. We have some very plain pipe fishes. The ones you showed are not even legal for purchase.

Mike, did you mean if they sell them, they will be prosecuted and fined? Those specimens must be something else. Like some species of aros which are still under CITES protection.:)

WOW! If those were legalized it'd be worth going saltwater just to keep them!!

USMC I have a link somewhere to a few people that legally keep the dragons. Gorgeous. I believe the cost is about $3,000 each when available. Not to bad considering I spent about $2,500 for my kangaroo and that's not even protected. My black island aldabra tortoise (galopagos) set me back $5,000 when I was 18. (You guessed right, I spend more money on pets than on things like cars.)
