The Banggai Cardinalfish is one of the most popular ornamental marine fish in the hobby. It came to the aquarium trade in the early 1990s and is currently experiencing declines in the wild, due to overharvesting the species for the trade. It can be found in the Banggai archipelago of Indonesia and in spite of the capability to captive breed the species, its population in the wild continues to dwindle due to overfishing, disease, and other factors.
