    last night i went to bed and was checking out my tank before retiring for the night, all was well but this morning i look in my sump/fuge and there were 4 little bangal cardnalfish, i was worried about the pair before as they were a little terratorial and one was not eating as well as before.
    I guess they were sucked down into the sump and only 4 of them made it past the skimmer:-[

    LOL welcome to the world of the Bangaii Cardinal LOL They will breed every 30 days or so as the fry flush away.. makes great reef food and you know they are semi mouth breeders I assume .. You will notice the lower Jay distends and looks different when they are carrying eggs.. I have had them to live generations in my overflows and they fry grew then there where just 2 in a overflow then they would spawn . If you have enough rock work many fry will reach maturity in the tank until the pecking order gets them under control .. Daddy/Momma ? LOL

    That's a GREAT story! Your water conditions must be fantastic! Have you named them yet? Do they have health insurance? Cribs? Hopefully there are some good schools in your area. LOL. Schools.
