Also known as Kaudern’s or Longfin Cardinal, the Banggai Cardinal are a bit more aggressive than the similar Pajama Cardinal but these fish still make excellent additions to a community saltwater tank. This species does better in a small school of three to six. Like the pajama cardinalfish, banggai cardinals will eat most prepared marine aquarium foods and adapt well to small and mid-size marine fish tanks. Though cardinalfish swim in schools in the open they need some crevices to hide. Like most small marine fish they are shy.
