    Default Bangaii Cardinals- Breeding New Batch Oct. 2011 Coming Soon.

    Hey Everyone.


    Here are a few shots of our Bangaii Cardinal who is currently holding babies. I mentioned this in Justahobby's thread and so I decided to pull out the camera and take some shots.. Here they are for your enjoyment..

    Sorry for the blurriness... Need to have my lenses cleaned.

    So cool Eve. Nice pics. Will you pull them out when they are released?

    Mouth brooders are so fun to watch!

    So want to catch and rear them in the biocube.. but thinking it may be best for all to leave everyone alone and of course let nature take its course.


    I think he will be releasing tonight, as you can see in the pics the babies eyes are well developed as well as their little fins as you can see in the 1st pic... The second pic is my favorite as I somewhat captured the moment of parent & sibling eyes....

    Well, nature taking it's course means food for your reef. : (

    I vote to rear them in the BioCube!

    All the pics are awesome!

    Very cool! Like Rob I'd feel like at least trying to raise them.
    Can they eat baby brine? I still have half a jar of BRD decapsulated hatchable eggs if you want to give it a shot.

    Baby brine would be an excellent start. If you don't pull the male out, you might also try a fake urchin to give the babes a hiding place.

    Ross & I were talking about it last night, and we were wondering what they would eat??? Live Phyto, Baby Brine????

    I guess if the male still has them in his mouth when I get home from work. I will see what I can do.......

    Everyone i have read w/ success, starts w/ enriched baby brine. You can work up to cyclopeeze, but that usually takes a few weeks. Feel free to call me this evening.

    Thanks Justin for the info. And everyone else who has offered to help get these babies going...


    I just got home from work, and noticed that the babies are still in dad's mouth.

    I am wondering if the pump in the BCube is too strong for them??? Or should I get one of those breeder nets???

    Back in the FW days when the babies were ready. I would catch the parent and strip the babies from her mouth.. I dont want to risk anything happening to the dad if I did this.. Your thoughts? Or should I just catch dad and put him in the Bcube and let him release there or what?????

    Any experts out there~~~~~~
