    Have you been feeding live foods? I've found that live foods and great water quality are the best way to cajole fish into spawning no matter what the species.

    If you have had them for a year they have probably spawned already. if you dont have a tank set up special for spawning, i am afraid the eggs will get eaten, maybe this is why you have not seen any fry.

    Also, the eggs and fry are TINY. The adults will happily eat their own eggs and fry.

    At a year old you should be able to spawn them under the right conditions. Things like conditioning with live foods, water quality/chemistry, & keeping your Tetras in a species tank (a tank with only glolight tetras in it, or maybe glolight tetras & some other docile fish e.g. otocats, cories) would contribute to success considerably.

    There are a couple of threads started by another user (LiquidPyro) on here that is trying to get his glolights to spawn too. http://www.aquariacentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=239343 AND http://www.aquariacentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=241660 I suggest you browse them as you'll get some valuable info off of them.

    I myself am attempting to get neon tetras to spawn, which is a similar process http://www.aquariacentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=242676

    Good luck & if you have some success please do share your experience.

    you need to watch them carefully since they eat their eggs once they lay them. if your fish is 1 year them it should have bred

    Fish will spawn naturally if conditions are right. They will NEVER spawn if conditions are not right.

    Needs lots of food, live is best. Large WC and often.
