This beautiful and rare pipefish looks like a miniature dragon. The Glittering pipefish (Halicampus nitidus) can easily be identified by scuba divers and underwater macro photographers because of its stunning spikes and dark brown and silvery-white bands around its body, similar to a zebra’s pattern. It’s one of our guests’ favorite subject for underwater macro photography.
