On the photos of the fish, the lower photo is a male in front and i think a female behind. The upper photo (the Longfin) I am not sure, I suspect a male.
On the breeding tank, have a read of the bit i posted previously concerning the spawning material, whether plants like Java Moss on the bottom or artificial. These are egg scatterers, so when they spawn the eggs are just scattered and have to fall into something that will prevent the parents from gobbling them up.
Infusoria is best cultured from dry leaves, such as oak, beech, almond. Collect these yourself is fine, dry them completely, then put a few in. Add more regularly. You can also buy Infusoria cultures in some fish stores i believe.
