There are a couple of Cardinalfish species that are quite common in the aquarium trade including the Banggai Cardinalfish and the Pajama Cardinalfish. Others, such as the Flame Cardinalfish and the Longspine Cardinal are not very common. This group can be very interesting to keep and they stay on the small side only geting up to 2 or 3 inches as adults. They also can be a good first introduction to the breeding of marine fishes. The Banggai has been bred by hobbyists and professionals alike. This is a good thing for our hobby because the Banggai is threatened in it's natural habitat.
