Rosy Barb Fish Breeding

Rosy barb is one of the best choice to start breeding with, while according to me Molly's were the easiest ones. Rosy barb are egg layers which means they give eggs and fertilizes them outside their body.They give egg in shallow water .When the female is ready to spawn,she will appear thick because of eggs,spawning mostly occur in early morning.Female give eggs on plants and parents will also try to eat them if they find them so advised to use big tank.The young will hatch in 24 to 36 hrs. After hatching move parents to separate tank,so they can't eat fry. Avoid use of air pump because it may suck the kids .Avoid sudden movement of water and sudden change of temperature of water.You can feed them algae from the parent tank or crushed food which you use for their parents or can switch to liquid food.
