hello there,and welcome.
i shall try and be as helpfull as i can,although
you may find some of this information a little negative.
ok, in the experiance(sp) i have with my Tbarbs,
the male will have a lovely bright red nose,the females are
more pale.The male will chase the feamale until she is in a bunch
of plants,usually the Villas,i don't get too close so do not see eggs,
however the male should fertlise the eggs as soon as they drop.
then they will move on to the next lot of plants,as soon
as she stopped he ususlly swims off,so i guess they have finished.
the eggs will drop into the gravel,the other way i know they have spawned is because there will be a crowd of fish arond that spot
all scrambling around in the gravel,scoffing the eggs.
i have no intention of breeding them,if it happens,it happens.
A 10 glln tank IMHO is a bit small,as these are active fish,and do best in a large group,also you have a Betta in with barbs,you may be lucky,but be aware this can go wrong.
i hope i have been a little help to you, :)
