Will your goldfish eat your tiger barb?
No it will not. However, if there are 3 or more tiger barbs, then they might get the courage to nip at its fins. And i Highly advise you not to keep tiger barbs with goldfish because tiger barbs live in warm water (about 70-85 degrees). and gold fish live in colder water. The tiger barb would ultimately die.
What should you do when your tiger barbs are starting to nip at your angelfish?
What should you do when the tiger barbs in the tank are starting to nip at the angelfish?
Tiger Barbs should ideally not be kept with angelfish, as they are slow moving and long finned - and therefore tempting to nip at. This can cause great stress to the angelfish, so the tiger barbs should be moved to a separate tank if possible. Alternatively, if the first option is not possible, a constant food supply should be maintained to give the barbs something else to do and distract them from fin-nipping.
How do tiger barbs mate?
Tiger Barbs (Barbus tetrazona) lay eggs that are fertilised outside the body. The males drive/chase the females in amongst the water plants. The females scatter their eggs and the males scatter their sperm (milt). Most of the fertilised eggs (ova) stick to the plants where they will develop. From spawning Tiger Barbs are on their own and not looked after by their parents.
