Tail Fishing

How do you breed fish?

I have just bought a orange fancy tailed fish (not sure what breed looks like a black moor but orange :S) and i wondered what i need to do so they'll breed,I need expereanced breeders answers please people :),xxx.

It depends on a LOT of factors. For instance, do you know how to differentiate males from females? (No, you can't look between their fins! ) You might get a book on the specific breed from a good pet store. I used to breed cichlids. They like slightly brackish water. They need hiding places (shelves and rock crevices), they have to be in the right ratio, the ph must be perfect. Some breeds just won't breed in captivity. I've bred auratis and aulonocarnara (peacocks) successfully. They are mouth breeders with teeth!
Do the research first. Then try it. It's hard to breed in smaller tanks too.
Good luck
