These little things are amazing!

Update: berghia are not as sensitive as some may think because despite my INSANE water chemistry problems lately, I was up late last night and was able to spot 10 berghia out and eating away! I am 100% a berghia supporter and would NEVER recommend any...

Banggai Cardinal - Pterapogon kauderni

64

Banggai Cardinal, a.k.a. Kaudern’s Cardinal, has become one of the most popular marine aquarium species. These gorgeous silver and black Cardinalfish are found in remote islands of Indonesia and are known to hide within the spines of long-spine sea urchins. Although the Banggai Cardinal has been introduced into new areas outside of its native range, some experts believe that it is risk of becoming endangered due to overcollecting.

This species is known to be a mouthbrooder. The male holds the fertilized eggs in his mouth until full development, and releases them as juveniles. Banggai Cardinals have a spawn size of anywhere from 12 to 50 fry, which develop in the male’s mouth for 20-24 days. They will spawn every 30 days and it is not uncommon to observe this in home aquaria. The juveniles emerge ready to take newly hatched brine shrimp. For these reasons, this is a species many home aquarists have bred and reared.

These captive bred cardinals are approx. over 1 inch. Since it is captive bred they will eat a variety of frozen and dried foods.

They are guaranteed for live arrival.

Thanks

Got my little guys. They've been in my tank for about an hour now. Two disappeared and one is just hanging out. He's near an aiptasia but hasn't started dining yet. The coral is doing well too. Thanks again for all the help!
