The Syngnathidae family is a group of fish found in marine and freshwater environments worldwide. This family includes species such as seahorses, pipefish, trumpetfish and seadragon. These fish are known for their unique body shapes and distinctive modes of swimming, characterized by their long snouts, small mouths, and undulating bodies. They feed on small crustaceans and plankton, and many species are popular in the aquarium trade. However, some species, such as seahorses, are threatened by habitat loss and over-fishing. In their natural habitats, Syngnathidae play important roles in maintaining the balance of aquatic ecosystems.
