Keeping Betta Antoni from an Aquarist View
Betta antoni can be housed in pairs, species tanks, and community tanks. Pairs can be housed in a 20 gallon tank, groups should be housed in a 40 gallon tank or larger. Pairs should be given cover such as caves and plants. In a pair or species situation it is possible that fry could be discovered in the tanks. For best results remove a brooding male.
Not critical, Antoni is very tolerant of water chemistry and thrives in almost any type of water as long as it is clean and well filtered. They should be kept at cool to mid 70s F.
Antoni males normally are more intensely colored than females. Females tend to have two lateral bands while male does not. A female’s ovaries might be visible via spotlighting.
Antoni is a paternal mouthbrooder and the male incubates from 12 to 17 days with 14 days being very consistent. Incubation time can vary with water temperature. Females normally initiate spawning.
Similar species would be Immaculata complex members.
