The mouthbrooders at Hof van Eckberge are white with black. This species of mouthbrooder is called the Banggai cardinalfish. Mouthbrooders are fish in which the parents continue incubating the fertilized eggs in their mouths. Sometimes the female has this task, but it may also be the male or both parents. When the young are large enough to survive on their own, the parent spits them out.
