I tried, but it was when I first started to try to breed and I failed.

This is what I read and tried to do. If they grew up together, then they won't mate. You have to have the female in her own tank for a while, then introduce the male later on after you've feed the female fat with frozen and live foods.

I'm sure there's people here who have done it and can tell you what I did wrong and what to do right.

There's something about them spawning during the sunrise/early morning. Just read and try and if you fail, try again. I had too much going on at the time and didn't really have the time to tinker around.
