This pipefish was photographed at Blue Heron in West Palm Beach in about 3FSW. It was approximately 5-6" long.
I have looked through all of my books, contacted my friends who are fish ID pros and done an exhaustive online search, but can't seem to find a similar fish.
I have seen shortfin pipefish at this location before. Could this be a shortfin pipefish displaying a different color pattern?
Please respond here and via email if you can (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks for your help.
