Female cherry barbs with no male, ok?
I have 6 female cherry barbs in my tank. I took back the last male because he was relentlessly chasing them, and they were always out of breath. Since he went back they have been living calmly and peacefully. However, they are starting to get big with eggs. Will they live ok with out a male? I don't want them to be unhealthy or uncomfortable.
I just don't want to get another male and have them be so constantly harassed. I had had more than one male at one point and it was bad. So at first I took all but 1 back and the one remaining one still managed to be very assertive to all of the girls..
In the end though, I don't want to do something wrong and have them die because they are egg bound or something.
