Verry beautifull that d jansii.I wanted to buy the jansii pipefish and one of the striped ones but ive always feared they need live food like most of the seahorses.Now i feel sorry i didnt buyed them after i read they eat well frozen food.Ive heard they have short lifespan,maybe you breed them.These clearely worth the effort to breed them because they are expensive ,rare and it shouldnt be too hard to rear the fry.

Janssi and bluestripe pipefish go very actively after frozen mysis and are well capable of competing with rather aggressive eaters.
With the Dunckerocampus species I would be more cautious as they don't like high flow as much as the Doryrhampus species (which actually seem to like it if it is in intervals with low flow periods).

Actually, most seahorses now have been trained to eat frozen mysis shrimp.
There are not many wild caught seahorses sold any more, at least here in North America.

I have a pair of dragon faces in a sps reef tons of flow. Doesn't seem to bother them at all. The swim together all day picking pods from the holes in my live rock
