Seahorses, Pipe and Razorfish; Syngnathiformes

You can find most of these beautiful creatures when scuba diving on Koh Phangan’s local dive sites.

All swimming together, head down/tail up, in total synchronisation. Great to watch them as they move around.

Photographed only in one place on Koh Phangan so far, but spotted elsewhere...

Always found in shady places, this fish apparently works as a cleaner, though we have not seen it cleaning as yet...

Originally misnamed as a Banded Pipefish. Bottom dwelling and well camouflaged.

Shy, beautiful beasties, still reasonably common around Koh Phangan..

We thought that these small beauties were in the Pegasiformes; wrong again!

These are undoubtedly in the Pipefish family, but beyond that we are not really sure!
