You can do it but need a breeding tank with no other fish. I'd move the female (s) into the breeding set up and condition for 10 days with live baby brine shrimp and other food. The rest is straight forward and you can read it on the net. The next hard parts are pulling the adults befor ethe eggs are eaten and feeding micro fry.

If you decise to do it P.M. and I'll give you detail. Happy Holidays

For starters your water parameters would need to be perfect with soft acidic to neutral ph. It could also depend if and for how long theyve been kept in hard alkaline water.

Fish my try and spawn in hard alkaline water but the eggs dont develop properly if at all and or can be greatly deformed. Ive heard stories of fry being one sex or 3 out of 50 eggs develop.
