Are they egg scatterers? If you put em in a big breeding net the eggs would fall to safety.

Yes and these guys stress out easily if not with a group of 6 or more so you gotta leave the pair together for 24 hours or else they go ballistic stressed out so its kinda hard with breeding nets :/

I find any kind of moss in the tank is easier to hide the eggs and fry. Simply because the bigger fish cannot reach them.

I got an idea!!! Use craft mesh, with some moss and rocks on the sides to hold it down...rocks along the bottom of the sides, so the eggs land on a bare surface in the center... Laying it down on the bottom, allowing it to catch fallen eggs without the fish eating them? Just a thought =D

Try spawning them the same way you would spawn danios. People use a craft mesh like Sena suggested but they raise it up off the bottom of the tank by placing it on top of small flowerpots or other things. Another way to save the eggs is to put marbles, lots of marbles, on the bottom. The eggs fall down between the marbles where the parents can't get them. Then you remove the parents and hatch the eggs in the tank. Lots of plants is good, means lots of infusoria for the babies.

If you breed guppies . . . well, there's very little effort required. A male, a few females, leave them alone, and in 4-6 weeks, more guppies than you can handle. -___- In my own experience, guppies don't eat the young either.

Hehe hence the rocks beneath the mesh :p My one tank had a mesh thinger for the bottom which is why my danios spawned successfully -.-;

Oh, sorry. I was having trouble picturing it, I guess. Yeah, what Sena said.
