    Hey all,

    I've been reading online that this is one of the more succesfull fish with captive breeding. They are also listed as "Vulnerable" - largely due to collection from their very restricted distributions.

    Does anyone have a breeding pair? I would love to buy some offspring? I won't buy wild caught ones :p

    I have finally got a breeding pair going but no eggs yet will keep you posted.

    This is definitely a fish i would like to breed on a reasonable scale

    Clowns are also easy but raising the larvae another story

    Awesome news Lockes! Where are you based? Great to hear that someone has a breeding pair. These fish need everything they can to ease pressure on local populations...

    See IUCN info for details > Pterapogon kauderni (Banggai Cardinalfish)
