Flame Cardinal Fish, (variety of species like apogon binotatus or Apogon maculatus etc.) is very common flame red nocturnal fish in the Caribbean. We find them very often underneath ledges and big coral heads.
Please Note: Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined. All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system. If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank. If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak. We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we dont always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed. A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.

very impressed with the condition these fish arrived in yesterday. excellent coloration, good water temp, no water fouling, and no signs of external parasites or fungus. I dont normally feed right away but they looked so good in the acclimation bucket I decided to drop in some shrimp and they fed happily. will purchase again from this company, for sure.
