I have 2 females and 1 male in a 20g community tank.The male seems interested in one of the females but she wants nothing to with him. He gets aggressive sometimes but doesnt seem to do any damage. Should i move them to a 10 gallon by themselves? How will i know when they actually lay eggs, can i see them? Any advice would be great thanks!

Feed them heavily on live food for about a week.
Cover the bottom of the 10 with marbles or pebbles.
Lower the water level in the 10 to 3 inches.
Place the barbs in the 10 for 24 hours.
Remove the barbs.
You should see what looks like tiny needles with eyes in about a week.
Feed very finely ground flake food at this point.

The snails may eat the eggs during the three to five days they take to hatch.

Well they're definately spawning now. So can you grow infusoria with a pea instead of lettauce? Any other suggestions on what to feed the little guys? What about hard-boiled egg yolk? Also I don't have a sponge filter but I have lots of Java Moss will that be ok?

The java moss would work out just fine.

Egg yoke works as well, though be sure to syphon off any uneatten amount.
