General Body Form:
Breeding the Rosy bard is fairly easy. The tank should be large and have a thin layer of gravel. Provide fine leafed plants for the eggs to scatter into. The water should be well aged and have a neutral pH. Place one male and two females in the tank. Spawning usually will take place in the morning and the females are the more active partners. They will chase each other around and the spawning will take place in one of the plants. The pair will wrap themselves around each other and shake until the eggs are laid. This will happen several times and the number of eggs laid can be very large. The parents are egg eaters and will eat the spawn if given the chance. Remove the trio immediately as they will start eating the eggs even during the spawning. The eggs hatch in about a day and the fry must be fed fine flake food or baby brine. Growth is rapid and the young are easy to care for. Keep up the water changes as the fry require better water than the adults.
