    tetra's are usually quite hard too breed, probably need a seperate breeding tank and best left to professional breeders

    this site says "not too hard if the ph is between 6.5 and 6.8"

    They need a separate tank, they need to be well conditioned, marbles on the bottom keep them from eating their eggs, they need to be stimulated to breed somehow, and it's reallly hard to raise the fry...sorry, not much help, that's about all I can remember. :-\

    It probably could, if you put enough time into researching and trial and error :)

    I know Corydoras are stimulated to breed by lowering the water level and making it colder. You could contact a breeder or research how/when they breed in the wild if you'd really want to :)

    cories are stimulated by allowing the water to evaporate off then pouring colder water in like rain.
