I am happy to do it my friend! :) It makes me feel good to know that you are enjoying them, they are doing well, and they are spawning! These guys are rare and need help. It's important to share these guys with others to help save them.

Got permission from TheFishGuy to share and update my new 6 bartoni fry that I just got from him yesterday! I am very excited! I have them in a 75 gal and look forward to them growing and spawning. They don't have collection data but they are pure. They are fry from his pair on this thread. I will keep this updated as things happen. Here is a video of them. I really love and enjoy these guys! They are vulnerable and at risk in nature in the CARES list.

It's been a while since my last post. The bartoni are doing great! They haven't spawned yet but they are getting bigger. Hopefully, they will spawn fairly soon. Here is a video of them I just made.

Good news! The bartoni have spawned for the 1st time! :dancing: . Not sure how it will turn out but hopefully it will be good. I will post some pics later on.

I don't think the eggs made it. Unless the male is taking care of them. They aren't acting like a pair anymore. He chases her away and does spend time around the pot here and there but not a lot. The other bartoni are in there and I have a group of giant danios. Hopefully, they will spawn again soon!

Mine were very secretive when they spawned. If this was the first time it's possible they ate the eggs.

Keep them as a group, my male almost killed my female when I took the others out...

I think they did eat them. I noticed the numbers of the eggs lower as it came to the 2nd day but I thought they were moving them like they do for the wriggler stage. Guess I was wrong.

I will keep them all together. I have a 2nd female in the group that is looking ready. Wow that's crazy about your female almost getting killed! Thanks! :)

I believe my dominate male bartoni has spawned with either the same female or another one! The egg tube is out on the female. The only problem is he kicked her out and is defending it. Looks like he is fanning/fertilizing them. They spawned on a side of the other pot in the tank that I can't see the eggs. I hope this one will be good!
