How's this for breeding tank?

The one on the right is a short reptile/ small animal cage thing really, but is it viable to use as a breeding tank (maybe with vents covered)? Also what do you think of the lid on the other one?

I don't think they are appropiate tanks for breeding.
A 10 galon is ideal for spawning as it will give you good space for the pair to get away from eachother when they need to. With smaller containers you run the risk of the tfish being in close contact while they are not ready to embrace and end up killing eachother.
The lids on your containers are not appropiate either. Breeding tanks should have close lids that prevent cold air to reach the surface.
Saran wrap works fine... I use glass lids on my tanks.

ok i kind of figured that. the tank beside it is a 10 gallon that will become the breeding tank then...

couple other questions... i have 20 gallon i got from my sister, but it's covered in lime scale (it never got cleaned) it won't hurt the fish, right? and is there any tricks to get maybe some of it off?

get some clr from wal mart. That and a scraper will kill that lime quick. Be sure to rinse the tank out really well after you use it.
