My Odessa Barbs gave me a Christmas present!

Or shall I say 9 presents? I have counted 9 Odessa Barb fry so far. They have to be about 3 or 4 days old, but I just spotted them today. I have been trying to spawn these barbs for about 6 months now. They sure as heck took their time! I apologize for the picture quality. I left my bajillion dollar digital camera at a friends house so I had to use my phone.

Nice! Spawns are always exciting, and actually getting fry is even MORE exciting!

Congratulations!
Are the adults leaving the fry alone? I was hoping my corys would spawn today. Not yet though. >=))))(į>

Yes. I have a lot of floating plants so it's tough to get to them. I'm also feeding a little more than the usual while being mindful of the water parameters. From what I can tell, the adults have made no attempt to get to the fry. The only other fish in this tank are panda cories, so no worries there.
