Uhm so I have yet another *situation* in my 55g between a male & female Albino Tiger Barb if you know what I mean.....

They will eat their eggs right away like they do every time my Cory's have eggs - RIGHT?

I really begin to think something is *off* in that 55g tank I never had fish that were NOT livebears and still breeding THAT much

I'd say something was on and not off in your water. :p Fish breed when conditions are good.

Barbs usually breed every 2 weeks. sadly the eggs don't make it in a community tank.

My barbs have eggs in them at the moment....and will have again in two weeks...

Your food, water, temperature and overall population:tank size ratio is good!!

I donno about the 2 weeks matter.....unless mine are on a diff time schedule in the East here

Water (from tap is pH 6.8 and KH1) in the 55g it is pH 7.5 and KH 4-5
Population in the 55g: 1 Kissing Gourami; 9 Albino Tiger Barbs; 6 Bronze Cory Cats (needless to say with THAT set up no egg survives in there lol)
Temp's at 73-74F

East? Where about.... I'm here in South Africa on the East Coast and my Tigers spawn every 2 weeks! Its crazy.

I feed them on a strict diet of bloodworms, cichlid pellets and flakes.

LOL sorry I meant East as in the US (TN here). Only place in Africa I ever been was tunisia and that was many many many yrs ago

Yea mine get a pretty neat variety of food (apart from the eggs that is). Apparently they're happy buggers there

Actually I have no idea how these fish even survive in the wild. Mine would spawn on a regular basis but they would eat their own eggs like CRAZY. Every time one was laid another fish would swoop in and eat it right as the female released it.
