    Wow they look amazing. I especially like the bangaiis, it's quite unusual looking.

    Thanks for all the comments guys.

    I placed another order just now for 2 more bangaiis and a pair of fire shrimp.

    That will give me a group of 4 bangaiis which I hope to secure a pair out of...........

    I really hope you get a pair and breed them. They need it.

    Definitely agree with you.

    The only downside is that it has been proven the wild caught specimens (the ones which I have and are on order) produce better quality offspring. So in order to get a breeding pair, wild caught specimens are a must.

    One of my friends is an importer and he has tried multiple times to raise fry from captive bred fry and only one or two from each batch survived. This has been mirrored by many other people I know who have bred bangaiis.

    It is still a massive improvement if a large part of the demand can be met by captive bred specimens.

    My current two are quite small so I'm not expecting anything for awhile. I expect the new ones due tomorrow will be roughly the same size.

    When/if they do breed. i will probably let the first few batches go to waste so the pairs can get used to breeding - a common practice with young breeding pairs.

    It would be great if some of the 'wasted' offspring do survive though

    2x Bangaii cardinals
    2x Fire Shrimp (big, fat ones as well)

    So far, one of the new cardinals in hiding the the other has joined my other two. I think I have established that out of the three who are together, the two largest are males and the smaller ones female. This is because I have seen lots of throat expanding and fin flashing but no physical fighting - probably because they are young.

    When I can confirm that I do have a M/F pair two of the bangaiis will be up for sale..........
