    Nevermind I think I jumped the gun. I thought red list was endangered, but I guess it means it is recomended to be endangered.

    They are getting there.Banggaii are only located in one small area and the aquarium trade is wiping them out.Luckily,tank bred ones will totally replace the wild caught ones.My advice look for tank bred variety also called Kardern cardinals.

    Yup, I have heard the same about the cardinals. I personally don't care for them, I think they look like a freshwater fish. But it is sad to hear about the diminishing numbers.

    Thanks reef I didn't know that about the tank raised ones having their own name. I do want a couple for my 29, but not if I'm hurting the wild broods.

    I think they only good in large tanks with a nice school of them.Otherwise one single tend to just hover in one place,very boring.They might look kinda bland and boring but it would still be cool to watch the male raise the babies in their mouth.Size for size those fish have this biggest mouth,I had one that was about two inches and could swallow a whole cube.

    I thought they would do good in a small tank. I was going to buy one maybe two. Yeah I seen them at the LFS before the don't move much but I do like them. I have others that I want to add but none alocally. One deff is the carpenter wrasse. I may just make a order with the docs.

    They do fine in small tanks.I just think its more interesting to have a school of them.That way,they will swim around the tank more often.

    Yeah I think your right on the school being cooler. I might just stick with the other fish I got in mind.

    They are n0cturnal and h0ver in place during the day. They are g00d f0r tanks with m00nlighting, camping 0ut in the darker secti0n and then ambushing micr0fauna attracted t0 the thin m00nlight beem. They can m0ve fast when they are 0n the hunt.

    Fun t0 watch after lights 0ut and reminiscent 0f the game fish "sn00k" that d0es the same thing ar0und d0ck lights here in FL 0n the ICW

    Use ta d0 quite a bit kayak fishing and ya cant swing a dead cat 0ut there with0ut hitting a sn00k but f0r s0me res0e the regs 0n this fish are absurd. I think y0u can still keep 0ne if caught during leap year 0n a Friday between 3am and 3:02am.

    does somebody have a broken o key on their keyboard ?!?! my vote is if you want one, I strongly recommend buying tank raised. leave the wild population be before they are completely wiped out. there was a good talk about breeding them on the last talking reefs live
