Yes most fish do breed in an aquarium but sometimes people set up special aquariums so they will definetely breed

yes most do. There are very picky things like neons that are all generally bred with hormones in the fish farms. Other than a few, most tetras will spawn easily in a aquarium, though they can be a little pick about water parameters when you are talking about spawning. The young usually need to be seperated from parents while they are still eggs, the bast way is to take the parents out after they have spawned so the tank is empty. Young need lots of live food, usually multiple kinds as they grow. Like when I raised rainbow fish I went vinegar eels, microworms, then grindal worms. All these need to be cultured and it can be quite a bit of work.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

If you do not isolate the parents from the frys, Would the parents eat them? I do have Black neon tetra's, not planning on breeding yet but probably in the future.
