Breeding Success with the Bangaii Cardinal Fish

Posted on Updated on

Over the course of a year or so I must have brought on about 100 or so Pterapogon kauderni and passed them back to the pet trade to relieve the pressure on wild caught specimens. This is no easy task, keeping the parents well maintained and in constant broodstock condition with the commitment of multiple feedings of cultured live food and good water quality for the fry can be quite time consuming – but very rewarding!Image

Here is a macro movie of some of the fry eating artemia nauplii which you can see in the movie is 0.4mm wide.
