The Bangai or Banner Cardinal is also well known as the Kaudern´s cardinalfish and has a very interesting color pattern that consists of black stripes and small white spots on a silver body. The first and second dorsal fins are large, as are the white spotted, black pelvic fins. In the wild, this species lives among shallow waters less than 2 m [7 feet] sea grass beds. It is important to say that on captivity plenty of live rock for hiding is a must. Cardinals are not aggressive towards other fish, and multiple specimens can be added to the aquarium, as long as it is at the same time. Cardinals are Reef safe and tend to do very well on community tanks. The Acclimation time should be between half to one hour.
