What should I do with them? Give them to a breeder since the species is endangered? Try to breed them myself? I have a male ,and female if that article is correct. Maybe I shoulden't concern myself with it ,and just keep them as normal fish like I have been doing.
Anyway how big do they get? I have looked over the article ,and it is a little above me (so many numbers!). Still cool though I am glad you shared it!
Oh here are some bad pics. Some of my new plants that haven't rooted are floeting.
Edit: Never mind I have no idea how to get a pic in here sorry.
The Fishbase link I posted gives the length as 9.5 cm (= almost 4 inches) for the male.
It is sometimes tricky to keep up with scientific advances.
I just realized that this fish has gone through a name change already. It is no longer in the genus Puntius but is now known as Dawkinsia rohani.
A revision of the Indian sub-continent species in the "former" Puntius was done this year (published this year anyway), I actually posted about this a couple months back but had forgotten.
My earlier post with the link is here: Revision of Barb genus Puntius
And i see my biologist friend Matt Ford in Spain/UK has written a synopsis of this revision, here: South Asian barbs – a guide to nomenclature — Seriously Fish
