    Four months ago we shared the ground breaking breeding of the*Ornate Ghost Pipefish,*Solenostomus paradoxus. Unfortunately none of the rearing attempts have been unsuccessful and the female has since died. The male*Solenostomus paradoxus however is*now paired up with the Robust Ghostpipefish, Solenostomus**cyanopterus,*also residing at the*California Academy of Sciences. Against all expectations the two actually started*spawning, and it appears the eggs are*actually*fertile, with eyes clearly*visible*in the video.
