This species grows up to 8 centimetres (3 in) total length.
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.Moderate water movement will also be appreciated by the Banggai Cardinalfish. Groups of Banggai Cardinalfish can be kept in relative peace in larger systems with plenty of swimming and hiding spaces.
They are aquarium fish that are easy to care for and are peaceful towards most other fish in the community, with the exception of other fish of the same species. The Banggai Cardinalfish is a reef-safe tropical saltwater fish that will peacefully coexist with corals, clams, crabs, and shrimp in a mixed reef tank.
This fish has been successfully bred in captivity. Once spawning has occurred, the male carries the eggs in his mouth to protect them.
Primarily carnivorous, Banggai Cardinalfish prefer meaty foods like blackworms, brine shrimp, and mysis shrimp. Fish should be fed in small portions several times a day, with a diet consisting of a well-balanced diet including enriched frozen brine shrimp and mysis shrimp, as well as quality marine food in the form of pellets or flakes.
