    You need a confirmed pair first, then put them in a 29 gallon with a breeding cone, sponge filter, and get the water right.

    I agree with the above. You can breed them in just about any size tank, but a smaller (no less then 20gals) will give the fry a better chance to attach to the parents after they hatch.

    I'd go for a bare tank, nothing but a heater, filter, and something for them to lay eggs on like a cone. It needs to be easy to clean and maintain.

    The fish in your gallery look to be a pigeon blood and a red turquoise.
