I would say it is similar to breeding most other barb species. Egg-scatterers that will eat the eggs if they get the chance.

What type of gold barbs are we talking here? There are Puntius gelius (I currently have a school of) and they were bought as gold barbs, and then there is Puntius sachsii (which I used to have) and many other "gold barbs". I had 2 male and 4 female Puntius sachsii and while they were displaying courting behavior in the 10 gallon I was keeping them in at one time none of the fry ever survived, not sure if any eggs even made it to a hatching point.
