All this pipefish talk piqued my curiousity. According to the "Audubon
Society Field Guide to North American Fishes, Whales and Dolphins" _Syn.
scovelli_ has a range described as "From Florida to Mexico in Gulf of
Mexico; fresh water in Louisiana and Florida." So I don't think it will be
easily collected from the D.C. area. From the photograph in the field guide
it's a cool-looking fish.
