    Abstract

    Apogonidae (cardinalfish), a speciose marine family, has about 23 genera and 347 valid species. Mostly shallow water inhabitants of pan tropical/subtropical marine environments, a few are found in brackish and freshwater environments (Nelson, 2006; Fraser & Allen, 2010; Froese & Pauly, 2010). Apogonid fish are usually smaller in size (,100 mm, total length) but a few species of genus, Apogon, Holapogon, Apogonichthyoides, Cheilodipterus, Glossamia and Pseudamia grow to larger sizes (Fraser, 1973; Froese & Pauly, 2010).
