The Banggai Cardinal fish. I believe this what I was referring to.

There is a salt water cardinal fish too, so you're remembering correctly.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

I searched up Cardinal fish freshwater and realized that they are neon tetras! I keep them, though I just euthanized my last batch due to severe fungal infections. Didn't know they went by two names. hmm.png

Oh, never mind. They are similar to neons, but not the same. I just saw the images and came to an incorrect conclusion. Oops! hide.gif

Yes they lived in a tropical fish tank. They are ideal for keeping with betas because of their short tails. Also, a bit of advice, if you ever decide to buy a batch of cardinals, don't get a mother batch sometime after. My father did this and the original cardinals started attacking the newer cardinals. sad.png
One of the fish died from too much attacking from the others. I am not sure they were supposed to do this though.

They are also fast I'm guessing, if they're anything like the neons, so they can evade bettas.

Yes, they are extremely fast. When he kept these fish I would try to get a close look at them but they would be swimming in every direction.
