Macro :Messmate pipefish イシヨウジ

Corythoichthys haematopterus (Bleeker, 1851)

Tiny Pretty Doragon

Ishi-yôji in Japanese

It is seen at shallow coral reef.
Unexpectedly the swimming speed is fast.
It swims as crawling on the sandy bottom of the sea floor. The face with big eyes and long proboscis is like a pretty dragon in a cartoon.
