Very common under this jetty, and while not obvious in this image they seem to like the protection of the copious Carijoa genus soft coral which is a particular feature of this jetty (in terms of sheer quantity...its common on many other jetties in the region).

Description

At rest at the limestone base of the seagrass scarp which forms the outer edge of Syngnathid Hotspot.
(FTR the term Syngnathid Hotspot is a colloquial one that arose decades ago when the location was usually teeming with a good variety of inshore pipefish species. Back then the large expanse of sandy substrate had many small outlier clumps of seagrass, including Posidonia, Amphibolis and zostera, which is where you could always find the majority of species. Over the last few decades and especially the last few years the outlier plants have become very scarce and often completely absent (with some seasonality as expected, for the first decade or so of decline, but now seemingly perennial absence for several years. This seagrass recession is as or more obvious when diving or snorkeling there, when looking at the edges of the dense meadows along the outer edges. These were once only mildly delineated from the outliers in the sandy parts towards the shallowest subtidal. Now there is a large scarp wherever the outer meadows terminate. The scarp is mostly at least one metre high, in places roughly 1.5 metres. Clearly anthropogenic in the main. Foreshore runoff and the nearby Bungala River outflows are responsible.

I note the several Rockpool Shrimps near this threefin, which is a very common association in shallow reef areas in our gulfs( whether simply because both are very common, or for some commensalism or so on, I don't know. I've often seen these shrimp cleaning this fish species, but mostly I just see them sharing similar habitat.)
