I have 6 neon tetras and I want to know if I can breed them. Can you tell me how to do it?

Well first step you need a second tank handy.

Then you need to identify a male and female and isolate them. Condition them.

I've never done it, but I checked an old book for you and it says they require a GH of 5 and a temperature of 70. Only put 1 male and 1 female in it, they need a tank with dim lights and water sprite.

Get some aquarium sealant and you can reseal it yourself. The Ohio Fish Rescue posted a how to video on this some time ago:
