You would have to establish plenty of micro food. There usually bred in ponds.

You would have to get them plenty of food. But big breeders usually breed them in ponds. I would use RCS if you want to breed.

I dont know size for breeding. But you would need to establish pleny of micro organisms. I have read you can have a colony of RCS in a 10 gallon.
