You can crush up the pellets a little so the smaller fish can eat it.
yea i just bought a new heater. gonna set it on 80. here's some pics of the cherry barb male. i dont think theres anything wrong with him now. if there was i dont think hed still be chasing the females.

Wow, hes got a long tail!
Though the picture is blurry, so thats all i can see.
Its tough to get a decent picture!
I wouldent worry about the size of the food for the cherries, though breaking them up will help. im currently feeding mine granules, and i watched one of my females pile five pieces in her mouth, race away, spit them out and eat them all one by one. Also, ive seen guppies and cherries alike carrying around a granule eating it on the go!

you can't compare males to females - they are different. It looks to me like there might be a slight deviance with it's body lines, but it's too soon to tell anything.

The "bad angel" is why rushing leads to trouble. Aquabid is a cool concept, but we sometimes need to slow down for the sake of the fish we already have. When we feel pressured to buy quickly, problems can come up. But trust me, fish keepers a lot more knowledgeable and famous than you have admitted to doing the same thing.

Anyway, I hope you can get it all sorted out.

well yea but my males look pretty similar in size to my females. hes the only one that looks a little different (skinnier) but if he were sick would he still be trying to breed with females? hes very active. im just gonna monitor the tank for the next few weeks very closely.

It could be that he is a longer tailed version, or maybe he's just younger!
Try taking a video, I find even a bad quality vid shows more than a picture!

I do see a small dip in his body before the tail starts, but again, that could just be because he long finned. do you have any other long finned ones for comparison? And i upload all my vids to youtube, and then post a link..its much easier that way.
Is he acting differently than the others?
