Banggai Cardinalfish (Pterapogon kauderni) are actually endemic to the Banggai Islands in Indonesia. They have found their way into the Lembeh Straits by aquarium fish traders introducing them in 2000. Since then they have flourished and they can be found living around Sea Urchins and Anemones.


This photo was taken by Lou using our rental Canon S95 camera, which you can hire from 'The Digital Centre', whilst diving at either of our dive centres at Kima Bajo or at Lembeh Cottages.
