try removing the pair into another tank if you dont want the other fishes to eat the babies.there's this thing called a breeding mop or something like that for the fry to hide in add that in the tank.thats the basic i guess. hope it helps a little.

yellowish i guess.most fish eggs are.i dont think you need another tank.ask the lfs the have breeding tanks that fits in the main tank.mostly used for guppies.

there r alot of large rocks and small spaces that the fry can go in but the adults cant..i hope some survived..it will be cool to see an egg grow into an adult :) i never raised one so i hope at least one out of those survive...if there was any cause i cant find any

If you don't see any eggs isn't it possible the barbs ate the eggs?
