banggai cardinal

  1. General Reef Discussion
    So a while ago I purchased three juvenile Bangaii Cardinal fish and recently had to return one to the fish store after the other two bullied him. I was excited to learn that meant they were probably a mated pair! Sure enough I looked at my Banggai today and his jaw is very large and he's not...

    About a week ago I saw one of my banggais "zip over" to another banggai and do a little shake. I saw this happen several times throughout that particular day. A little research and I found out that it was the mating dance. How cute! Now, the male has puffy cheeks and I see eggs inside his...

    OK, I have some good news... my male Banggai has stopped eating and has the swollen jaw look and I believe that some fry are on their way! So now, I guess I need to keep track of my new brood. I will get some pics up as soon as possible but the wife's birthday takes a priority :bcake: Fun times!
