Banggai Cardinalfish

Banggai Cardinalfish, juveniles in mouth

These days our Guide Aso is taking the Krueger familiy from the Netherlands diving. Today they decided, that they would like to see Banggai Cardinalfish. So we went with their boat to Police Pier 2 and planned the dive to have more time in the shallows just under the pearl farm jetty … there is a big Anemone with hundrets of Banggai Cardinalfishes. We spend a good 25 minutes just watching these beautiful fish gathering around their Anemone. There were even several ones with Eggs and also some with hatched babies intheir mouth. The Banggai Cardinalfish incubates the eggs in the mouth for 20 days and then keeps the hatched babies for another 10 days.
