Herichthys Bartoni Spawn Pics

They've been colored up for a while now, this is their first spawn. They're small but threw a decent amount of fry.

Tank is a 50 breeder, 36"x18"x16" tall and been established for quite some time.
They (7 bartoni) were moved in a month or so ago from a 15 gallon.
The other five are still in the tank with them.
I have pulled about 1/3 of their spawn and have placed them in a 5 1/2 gallon.

Enjoy. Questions and comments are always welcome. :)

Yep! :)

That's great! I am glad that you enjoy them a lot! They are very beautiful and threatened fish! I can't wait until I have room for them! I have never kept them but once when I do get some I know they will be the fish that will always be in my fishroom!

That coloration is only temporary correct? I have only ever seen H bartoni in that spawning dress in pictures. Anytime i see them they are rather drab . I would like to keep some of these some day .
Thanks
Tim

That's the breeding dress they're known for...
