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 larger islands, commonly in sheltered bays. It inhabits a variety of shallow habitats, including coral reefs, seagrass beds and less commonly, open areas of low branching coral and rubble. Its depth distribution ranges between 0.5 m and 6 m, but is most common between 1.5 m and 2.5 m. It is a sedentary species… Expand

The Banggai cardinalfish: an overview of local research (2007-2009)
TLDR
The presence of juvenile urchins in P. kauderni stomach contents indicates that the relationship may be more complex than was previously thought and an ontogenetic shift in diet is indicated. Expand

The Banggai cardinalfish: An overview of management and conservation initiatives
TLDR
The Banggai cardinalfish Pterapogon kauderni, with an unusual reproductive cycle (paternal mouthbrooder, no pelagic phase), has potential as a “flag-ship” species to drive conservation efforts in volving local stakeholders, and the multi­stakeholder multi­year BangGai Cardinal Fish Action Plan drawn up in 2007 covers Conservation, Management and Trade.

Natural rarity places clownfish colour morphs at risk of targeted and opportunistic exploitation in a marine aquarium fishery
As fish stocks become depleted, exploitation eventually fails to be cost-efficient. However, species or morphs of species can suffer from continual exploitation if their rarity results in increasedExpand

Ontogenetic Shift in Habitat Preference by Pterapogon kauderni, a Shallow Water Coral Reef Apogonid, with Direct Development
TLDR
P. kauderni, the Banggai Cardinalfish, demonstrates a marked ontogenetic shift in habitat and microhabitat use with new recruits differing significantly from older juveniles and adults, and a likely combination of various processes acting together in determining its distribution patterns. Expand
Unmonitored trade in marine ornamental fishes: the case of Indonesia’s Banggai cardinalfish (Pterapogon kauderni)
TLDR
It is proposed that long-term monitoring is needed to safeguard Banggai cardinalfish populations and to serve as a much-needed example for monitoring and managing other marine ornamental fishes at risk of over-exploitation. Expand
Population structure in Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, a coral reef species lacking a pelagic larval phase
TLDR
Small sample sizes and limited genetic variability in P. kauderni prevented a definitive conclusion, but further studies using larger samples and more rapidly evolving molecular markers may provide enough power to conclusively test the hypotheses. Expand
