Gastropodman asks:
>>>Are pipefish easy to keep and can the cohabit with hermit (and other)
snails, and maybe a sole?

Jan answers:
I have kept pipefish with other species (hermit crabs, seashorses,
tonguefishes, killies) in 10- and 20-gallon tanks. A couple of times a
week, I would remove the seahorses and pipefish, place them in a small tank
with food and let them feed for a few hours, then put them back in the tank.
