View Full Version : Albino Barb question!!!!

03-19-2007, 02:22 PM
I breed guppies, balloon mollies, and platys. I would like to breed my albino barbs, but don't no alot about them.

I have 2 paired up already, and don't no when the female will decide to fill with eggs.

When does this happen? Any specific time of the year?

Thank you,

Try raising the temp a bit. That should stimulate them.

What makes them start producing eggs?

What do you have to do to get the female to fill with eggs?

How long does it take?

Thanks for your response!!

I took your advice on reading the info. about the barbs and put my females together and my male back in the community tank. Turns out that my male died hours later and this morning my bg female was dead and the other was dying. She is still doing circles after I put her back into the community tank. This is really bad cause in order for me to get more, I would have to drive around 2 hrs to a walmart. :(

So sorry!!!! Did you condition the fish before trying to breed? and also what is the pH value of the water? it has to be very acidic.
