Picture of a Network Pipefish
Corythoichthys flavofasciatus, known commonly as the network pipefish, reticulate pipefish and yellow-banded pipefish and can reach a length of about 12 centimetres (4.7 in) in males.
This species is ovoviviparous. These fishes are probably monogamous and are usually found in pairs. The male carries the eggs in a ventral pouch, which is below the tail.
Hatching time usually lasts 10–12 days. These fishes feed on small invertebrates especially copepods, but also small isopods and ostracods.
