How to breed cardinal tetras?

How would I do it in a 25 gallon community tank? Could I move the eggs to another tank and let them hatch there. The tank will be planted.

Yes, it is possible to get Cardinal Tetra spawn inside a planted community tank.

As you can see in this video.
Cardinal Tetra spawning - YouTube

Most of the eggs will be eaten right away by other fish if not by themselves. If you want any of the eggs to survive, you must take them out and move them to a different tank of their own with no fish in there. The new hatching tank must not have lights on, as the Cardinal Tetra eggs are light sensitive.

The forum automatically changed the youtube link to their own page...

Just search "Cardinal Spawning" on Youtube, you will see that video on the top results. It is a video of cardinal tetra spawn in community tank. Most eggs were picked off by other fish right away. No egg had survived due to strong lights the aquarium had. It is a proof that they can indeed spawn inside community tank without special care. Read the video description and you will see. Nothing special was done. They just spawned after a water change.
