10 Captive Bred Cherry Barbs - Free to Good Home (Gloucester County)

Hi All,

My Cherry Barbs breed like crazy and I need to slim down the herd a bit. I'd like to see them go to an established aquarium in need of some red!

Let me know if you're interested. Weekend pickup preferred.

Thanks!

I'm up in Bergen county, so it's a little far, but how do you get them to breed so much? I have 10 in my 40 gallon but no breeding behavior.

Hey Stig,

Here's a pic of the paludarium I'm keeping them in, and I haven't tested water parameters in a long, long time.

Here are some of the tank's features that might influence the breeding:
--Cherry barbs are the only the fish species in the tank.
--Only tank mates are a few amano shrimp and millions of trumpet snails
--Weekly 25% water change
--I just pulled a bunch of anubias but there are usually plenty of dark , hidden corners in the tank
--No heater
--I use Seachem Flourish and Excel once a week
--Tetramin flakes for food once daily

Good luck if breeding is what you're shooting for, but take note: you can't even give these away!
