Lissocampus fatiloquus, also known as prophet’s pipefish is a species of marine fish belonging to the family Syngnathidae . The species has been noted in a variety of habitats including sargassum, seagrass beds and sandy substrates along the coast of Western Australia from Shark Bay to Rottnest Island . Their diet is thought to consist of small crustaceans such as copepods . Reproduction occurs through ovoviviparity in which the males brood eggs before giving live birth.
