(You dont have to answer the one that says "Oh, but i went to the store and i see all of them have that but its only a little, is that all female? or female has more of those colors?" just answer the other one and this one and make the first one 1) and the 2nd one 2).)
Is this a good breeding tank set up? i only use 2 tetras and i want to know if this is good enough, breed.jpg picture by sai559 - Photobucket.

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.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
