    Additional Information & Description

    The fish are easier to get to eat prepared foods than their cousins, the Banggai cardinals who often get a bad wrap for being difficult to get to survive in captivity. Some sources report that these can be kept in groups if introduced together, however I have had a different experience. Whenever kept in multiples, they have picked off one another until they were down to a single pair who live in harmony. Overall, a hardy and peaceful tank inhabitant that is sure to add a little something different.

    I really like the look and attributes of this species. Someday I hope to have a pair swimming in my reef tank.

    Got any pics of yours?
