In any event,,with the other fishes listed under your aquariums,,the eggs from spawning would have little chance of surviving for the other fishes, as well as the tetra's themselves,, would eat them.
You would need to set up separate tank, and place a few females or a pair in the tank and either provide dense cover in the way of plant's for fry to hide in or,,remove the parent's after the eggs were laid and feed the fry with suitable foods.(Micro foods,infusoria)
Ive done the whole seperate tank thing for danios. took the parents out next day, ended up with 60 fry until 3 weeks later i had an ich outbreak in all my tanks and lost all the babies
also i have once found a baby danio fry in my tank before, i tried catching it to put in the net breeder but squished it :(
but if i put them in a seperate tank, how do i know when the female and male are old enough to spawn, like i said the new ones are babies
here are some pictures
