What you can do is to add a control valve to the airline attached to the bubble wall, which gives you the ability to control the stream of bubbles coming from it. This can easily be turned down to allow them some bubble action while still leaving a part of the surface of the water somewhat still if they do decide spawning is the thing to do. Also keep in mind that only mature fish will spawn. It is very possible your fish are still too young and just not ready for that yet. Give them time, be patient, and enjoy them.
Once you post photos we can help you determine the sex of the fish.
No biggie either way. I didn't get them to breed just got 'em because they were active and healthy. I actually have 2 males and 1 female. 1 male is blue stripe and the other is a Flame. cannot tell what variety the female is since she has almost no coloration. the males get along fine and are inseparable. no fighting or nipping, female spends most of her time playing with the danios.
When and if I breed them ill set up a breed tank. Craigslist usually has a few 10 gallon tanks for $10 or less.
