I currently am also quarantining a dragon face pipefish . He has a ten gallon to himself with hob filtration. There is also a small rock and pvc pipe. A sponge filter is better than hob but if you decide to do hob cover up the large filter openings with mesh and clean it every three days.

Copepods are essential for dragon face pipefish since dragon face pipefish have the smallest mouth out of all pipefish. They have a hard time eating frozen food but you can train them to eat frozen while they're in qt. Mine readily accepts frozen now. You could also do a cyclops culture if desired.

I would not know which kind of pods are in the rock, may be different ones.

What do you think?


I would say just do the bottle of tigger pods because it will be easier and that rock might also house pests that you are trying to eliminate in the qt tank. A note of warning: if you have ever used any kind of copper in your qt before it will kill your copepods and pollute the tank.
