Black Cardinalfish Information
The Black Cardinal, apogon melas has large black eyes which are complemented with spots that are on fins of similar dimensions. They are tough and an excellent option for those who are just starting out. Because they are tranquil, they should be kept in a tranquil aquarium and could be used in educational institutions, if the tank is big enough.
They are reef-safe and won’t bother any corals or inverts inside the tank. They’re slower swimmers. And slower eaters also. The diet should consist of an assortment of mysis, either frozen or live or vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, at least twice every day.
