Velvet Mania in Lembeh

Pink-Purple Velvet Ghost Pipefish

Lembeh Strait is home to several species of Ghostpipefish including the Ornate, Robust, Slender, Roughsnout and Halimeda Ghostpipefish. But the rarest and most bizarre is the Velvet Ghostpipefish. It is smooth, relatively small and mimics sponges. And at the moment we are seeing them at 3 different dive sites: There are two purple pink individuals and one creamy white one. Two of them we are finding on newly discovered dive sites that we are diving – until now – as the only dive center here in Lembeh.
