My name is Andrew. I've got seven fish tanks from 4 gallons to 75. I keep all fresh water and attempt to breed as opportunity allows. Looking forward to using the online swap to exchange goods!

I keep a various assortment of fish. Roseline sharks, Rainbow fish, Tiger Barbs, Altispinosas, GBR's, various cory cat species, SAE's, a lone Gold Gourami, and Bristlenose plecs.
I have a breeding operation running with my bristlenose, thus the reason why I have over 50 of them growing out in random tanks at random sizes. Sold some to the Animal House as well. I have a 20L dedicated to just a pair of GBR's that have 5 batches of eggs and for different reasons I have not yet raised up the fry. I am letting the parents do it themselves and I can tell that they are getting better with time. It's so awesome watching them move the fry around in their mouths that I want to have a batch fully raised by the parents. They have gotten as far as taking care of free swimming fry, even putting them to bed at night in a tiny little spot they dug out. I have a breeding tank with only tiger barbs as well as one with Elegant Cories that I am waiting to get around to induce breeding on. Just haven't hasd the time. I do have a tiger barb baby from about 4 months ago that I have raised up, the lone survivor!

The pic in my avatar is my GBR male. I'll get some pics up here in the next few days.

glad you made it here.you got quite the breeding projects going on so it seems like it would be in your best interests to have the rams take as much care of the fry as possible.i cant breed anything,on purpose at least.once i got tanks all sorted out i gots to talk to you about some fry. i dont mind if they arent grown out to much.i also have on lone tier barb.he is of an albino coloring but not a true albino.you can have him for your project as he just pesters my columbian tetras.if you want him.well see yah around man.

Welcome to the forum Higher Thinking!
GBR are SO awesome! I have already said this once tonight on this forum, but they are prolly one of the coolest fish I have ever had.
Goos Luck!
