Abstract
    This study presents results on the mating tactics of male and female barbels (Barbus meridionalis) and common breams (Abramis brama) in aquarium. The reproductive behaviour of both species is polyandrous. In the barbel, courting and sneaking tactics were described, while in the bream territorial and sneaking tactics were described. In both species, some males seemed to be more efficient than others. The spawning success of the different types of males was analysed in the two species, accordingly to their spawning tactics and reproductive status
