    Ahhhh....the CPD (Celestial pearl danio). Very beautiful fish.

    I know of a few that have had success with them. Can't say that your conditions would be ideal with the Cherry Barbs though. If you really wanted to breed them, I would consider a nicely planted species only tank.

    Ahhhhhh....that changes things up a bit. ;o)

    May be a tad on the crowded side. Those that I know have had success have been in 10g tanks.

    Breeding fish requires a great deal of care and attention, not just rasbora or danio fish. And without a doubt, if you're going to breed fish in your primary aquarium you had better have a great deal of space to ensure that fish can remain undisturbed by others and claim their own territories. Usually breeding is best done in isolated breeding tanks, sometimes called "breeder boxes" among hobbyists and in the fish industry.
