Hi there!

I'm new to the forum and i have a big question. I have 9 tiger barbs and i can't tell which is a male or a female. How do you breed them?
Please help me!

P.S. Sometimes, one of the smallest barbs does headstands in front of bigger ones, and then stops. What is this supposed to mean?

Cheers for any help! :imnewhere:

Sounds like displaying behaviour...trying to attract the female!:ssmile: 2 males will display to each other as well...showing off and displaying their fins to see who is the dominant male...most schooling fish have a pecking order and establish a hierarchy.
