The ornate ghost pipefish or harlequin ghost pipefish, Solenostomus paradoxus, is a pipefish of the family Solenostomidae found in the Western Pacific and the Indian ocean along reef edges prone to strong currents.

Females carry the eggs in their pelvic fins that are modified to form a brood pouch.

The body and tail are long, thin, and snake-like.
