Overview

The Flame Cardinalfish, also known as the Flamefish, is fiery red with light accents of blue and green.

A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with caves and peaceful tank mates is a good environment for this slow and methodical swimmer. It should not be kept in large groups because of its aggressive behavior towards other Cardinalfish, although it does well in mated pairs. It is a nocturnal fish and may be watched using a red light.

The Flame Cardinalfish requires a well-balanced and vitamin-enriched diet of meaty foods such as feeder shrimp, marine flesh, bloodworms, and depending on its size, live feeder fish.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1" to 2"; Medium: 2" to 3"; Large: 3" to 4"

House the Banggai Cardinalfish in a well-filtered 30 gallon or larger aquarium aquascaped with a generous amount of live rock. Carefully arrange the aquarium landscape to create plenty of caves, overhangs, and crevices as well as an open area for swimming. House the Kaudern's Cardinal with peaceful tank mates as it is a slow and methodical swimmer. Due to its aggressive behavior towards conspecifics, the Banggai Cardinalfish should be kept individually or as a bonded pair. Groups of Banggai Cardinalfish can be kept in relative peace in larger systems with plenty of swimming and hiding spaces. Moderate water movement will also be appreciated by the Banggai Cardinalfish.

The Kaudern's Cardinal is relatively easy to breed in the aquarium setting. Once spawning has occurred, the male carries the eggs in his mouth to protect them.

The Kaudern's Cardinal should be fed a well balanced diet of meaty foods such as feeder shrimp, marine flesh, bloodworms, and depending on its size, live feeder fish.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1/2" to 1" Medium: 1" to 2"
