    Tiger Barbs dying off, fast!

    Odd looking Tiger Barb (Mouth Deformity)

    A couple of month ago my friend had to move and gave me his tiger barbs. I had already had tiger barbs so I knew what they needed.

    A few of my Tiger Barbs seem to have enlarged stomachs. I did some research and came up with - Swim Blatter Disease - Constipation - Dropsy But I’m not sure if my fish have these problems because they aren’t displaying most of the symptoms. They aren’t swimming weird, they are all eating, and...

    Tiger Barbs

    I have 30+ gallon tank with some Tiger Barbs. I was curious about the egg laying process. Could somebody specify what steps I should take to successfully breed them? I've been told that changing temperature is a common method but I am ultimately just curious.

    Black Convict Cichlids and Tiger Barbs?

    I’m moving and can’t take my black convict fish with me because I’m afraid he won’t survive the trip. My brother offered to take him, but we’re not sure if our fish are compatible. Can my black convict share a tank with tiger barbs?
