Tetras are egg scatterers. The problem is that when one lays eggs around the tank, the fish eat them. I've seen a picture in a book showing a tank with no gravel but the bottom filled with one layer of marbles. Like, marbles spread evenly across the bottom. My guess is that the eggs drop through the little spaces in between marbles and the fish can't get to them! Haha seems odd but i guess it works

Oh and all that needs to happen is males and females and high protein food for conditioning.

Instead of marbles you can use a mesh net then put rocks on top of mesh to weigh down but put something under kinda like zebra danios egg scatters too and eat eggs! Trying to find video though it is pretty cool and easy! It's on YouTube .
