Bhanotia fasciolata (corrugated pipefish, or barbed pipefish) is a marine fish of the family Syngnathidae. It is found in coral reefs, tidepools, and muddy/silty substrates in the Eastern Indian Ocean and Western Pacific.[1] It inhabits at a depth range of 3–25 metres (9.8–82.0 ft), where it can grow up to 9 centimetres (3.5 in). It is ovoviviparous, with the male carrying the eggs in a brood pouch until they are ready to hatch.[2]
