Endangered Banggai Cardinalfish

Although they’re easy to breed in captivity, they’re still subject to over collection, and now listed as endangered in the wild.

Where to Find Them in Indonesia

Restricted to the Benggai Islands in Indonesia, a small population also exists in Luwuk harbour (Central Sulawesi) and Lembeh Straits (North Sulawesi)


Where to Find Them in Bali

In May 2014, these beautiful fish were also seen in Secret Bay, Bali.
