    I totally agree with you. For the guys, who don´t know what the cyanosoma looks like.;)

    It is said, that these species are shoaling.

    they are schooling so i reckon i will have around 5 in my tank!! there are sooo many other cardinals out there

    Marcel: would the breed the same as the black and white cardinals? mouth brooders?

    a very nice "filler" fish. as they dont get to big :)

    I'm not sure :)

    i will be keeping chromis with them though. preferably Vanderbuilt Chromis. however, i do believe that we get a very similar one along our coast in summer

    also, these guys are bottom dwellers where as the chromis are normally higher up

    I think I would prefer to save my money and buy aipitasia than cardinals.

    Van der bilt, very good choice.
    5 are the absolute minimum, better 7!
    They Banggai cardinal is the only cardinal
    species that reproduces without having a larval development.
    Banggai=Pterapogon
    Others=Apogon

    As far as I know, they grow 5 to 6cm.

    bruce there are many beautiful cardinal species found along the transkei coast (SA coast), i personally am going to go local than support the shipping of these particular fish.. i feel i will have a better chance of getting them into my tank with minimal losses.. if any..
