Banggai Cardinal, also known as 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. 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 aquarium. The juveniles emerge ready to take newly hatched brine shrimp. For these reasons, this is a species many home aquarists have bred and reared. Their diet consists of mysis, brines, and other meaty foods. It may take even high quality flake and pellet foods.

This fish is guaranteed for live arrival.
