I have kept two tank raised percs in a 38 gallon together no problem.

Once they establish male/female will they breed? Or is it harder to do than that?

I plan on getting two or three when I set my 38 gallon back up. They have always been one of my favorite fish. Plus the women like nemo

Up to them really, not alot you can do about it directly. Indirectly you can help by maintaining good water quality, nutritious foods and a low stress evironment. Aggressive tank mates can inhibit their "desire" if you will for breeding. It will also help if there is an area in the tank they are able to protect easily enough. Often a small cave or outcroping is sufficent where there is med-low water flow.

Stick with only two in such a small tank. Once paired the "happy couple" will not tolerate a third given the space of a 38 gal.

Cheers
