Parosphromenus bin­tan ’Bintan’.For the new con­ser­va­tion project of Parosphromenus Project, we imported some Parosphromenus sam­ple from Bin­tan Island. Col­lected by a local friend, who lives in Bin­tan Island​.In a post from Feb­ru­ary Went­ian Shi wrote in Jour­ney to the water that some inter­est­ing obser­va­tions of this imported fish, raised the ques­tion – or ques­tions : Either the orig­i­nal P. bin­tan was not entirely blue, as described, but has a small inte­rior band of orange red, — or there may be a sec­ond species/​type on the Bin­tan Island.
I received one male and two females of this species in spring 2021, — with the intend of breed­ing – and try to doc­u­ment with photos.The breed­ing attempt was very suc­ces­full, — the off­spring now is around 6070, but the doc­u­ment­ing less a suc­cess. The male has spend most of the time in the cave, — and the few pho­tos I have taken were not the best, — how­ever heres a few of this very strong and beau­ti­ful species. Helene
