    OK... how do you tell them apart.... is their any noticeable difference between male & female.... And how are they at reproducing?

    Females are plump and will cause the red stripe to appear to bend; and are larger than males.

    Jonathan has bred the...I think. Need a spawning mop and dim lights for the eggs to develop if I remember correctly.

    Have you checked our our profile on them?

      What Dena said. Males are more torpedo shaped and much thinner. Spawning mops aren't usually terribly effective but they are helpful. Neons are egg scatterers and very good at eating their eggs. It's not difficult to convince them to breed but raising the fry can be challenging.

          From my experience with Neons spawning in my tank, they prefer dive bombing into the clump of Java moss to scatter their eggs. However, I never had luck in any eggs hatching in a community tank.
