The Spotted Xenia-Pipefish (Siokunichthys herrei) is a very rare white pipefish with brown spots on the head and upper body. It can be found in/around Xenia corals when diving with our experienced spotters in the waters around Romblon Island. It is a beautiful photo subject for underwater macro photographers.
