Pterapogon kauderni differs from most apogonids in several aspects of its reproductive biology. A breeding pair often allows a secondary male to intervene during mating. Each clutch consists of aboutExpand
Significant Increase in Survival of Captive-bred Juvenile Banggai Cardinalfish Pterapogon kauderni with an Essential Fatty Acid-Enriched Diet
Pterapogon kauderni is an endemic, direct developing, coral reef fish from Indonesia, which has become very popular in the aquarium community. During development of a captive breeding program, highExpand
Fine scale dispersal in Banggai Cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, a coral reef species lacking a pelagic larval phase.
Dispersal in marine species results from complex interactions between biotic and abiotic factors. Importantly, the pelagic larval phase of most marine species adds a significant degree of complexity.Expand
The Banggai Cardinalfish: Natural History, Conservation, and Culture of Pterapogon kauderni
The Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, is a fascinating species that possesses a series of remarkable biological characteristics making it unique among coral reef fishes. It has been theExpand
Ontogenetic Shift in Habitat Preference by Pterapogon kauderni, a Shallow Water Coral Reef Apogonid, with Direct Development
Abstract Pterapogon kauderni, the Banggai Cardinalfish, demonstrates a marked ontogenetic shift in habitat and microhabitat use with new recruits differing significantly from older juveniles andExpand
The unfortunate journey of Pterapogon kauderni: A remarkable apogonid endangered by the international ornamental fish trade, and its case in CITES
Pterapogon kauderni (Koumans 1933) is a popular aquarium fish that is endemic to the Banggai Archipelago in eastern Indonesia. It is generally found in calm zones on the leeward side of largerExpand
Systemic Iridovirus Infection in the Banggai Cardinalfish (Pterapogon Kauderni Koumans 1933)
Iridoviruses infect food and ornamental fish species from a wide range of freshwater to marine habitats across the globe. The objective of the current study was to characterize an iridovirus causingExpand
Population structure in Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, a coral reef species lacking a pelagic larval phase
Previous studies on two reef fish lacking a pelagic larval phase (Acanthochromis polyacanthus and Embiotoca jacksoni) revealed features that may be characteristic of their lifestyle: (1) low levelsExpand
