Banggai Cardinal Fish Breeding : This fish has been bred in the home aquarium and among saltwater fish, this is one of the easier ones to breed. They are mouth brooders, or more specifically, the male will mouth brood the fry until they are ready to be released. You will need to separate the adults from the young once released. Do a search on "Frank Marini" who has written some excellent articles on the breeding of this fish. His cardinal fish breeding articles are well worth the read if you are the least bit interested in breeding this fish.
