  • Gravid Gold Barb......AGAIN!

    I took a couple pictures of a gravid females barb. The funny thing is, 2-3 weeks ago the same female, I can tell by her nipped fin, was about to explode before she finally scattered her eggs! She is super woman!

    Did the barbs eat the eggs?

      I assume so, they all tend to more or less immediately start foraging around at the site, the sand and bare tank don't really help. I also don't have any sponge or anything on the filter intake.

          If I catch them in the act this time I'll try to siphon them up, I'm not sure how they'll do. I think normally you'd just put them in a tank with marbles so they can't eat them. If my wife let me set up another tank, I've got to say it wouldn't be a marble tank.

            I hope you manage to save some explain to her it's for babies who can resist setting up a tank for babies

              Heh too funny I have recently gotten away with setting up two more tanks for babies.

              You could also use over sized rock I have a bucket of rocks that are all about marble sized, it would work just as good.

                Hahahaha barbs do have a tendency to breed a lot . Very pretty fish!

                You could always breed them separately in a 10g or something. Pretty easy to set up a temporary breeding tank.

                  I've got enough on my hands for now

                  At least I know when/if I want to, all I have to do is give them their own tank and they go crazy!
