      Once again, absolutely fantastic! In the new issue of Coral magazine (and I can see the banner right to the right here), it’s largely about Banggai Cardinalfish and encouraging aquarists to try their hand at breeding them. I have never tried to breed a fish, but I must say that I found this really inspiring. Especially because it is so needed and it wouldn’t be like breeding guppies where everyone in the world has done it and you can’t even find anyone who wants them after. I’m really thinking of giving it a go and hopefully actively helping. Anyone tried? It SEEMS easy enough, but I’d have to do a lot of research before attempting. They also mention in that issue how they encourage LFS’ to provide equipment and support for aquarists taking up this cause to then receive discounts when buying the tank bred fish back. This would be great too, but I don’t know if any of them are really doing this. Does anyone out there know of any?

      Nicholas, IME breding Bangaii is etremely simple… they honestly remind me of my cichlid days, and breed (and pair off) much easier then some cichlids. Provide a pair with a nice calm environment, and you can grow out babies in a sump (of course with pump protection, etc.). Babies accept wide varieties of foods quickly making rearing young simple. I used to breed them in mass at an aquaculture facility, but will soon be setting up a small SPS grow-out system with a pair of these beuties in the dislpay, and a “baby refugium in the sump.

      I’m yet to hear of a LFS doing something that beneficial to encourage breeding, less the LFS breeding themselves…

      Nice to hear that you are really successful in the breeding of that Mccullochi Clownfish. Thats really rare.
