Not really good.. but if you were to say if they'll be ok to be housed in, then yes.. theres a possibility!!

For Ps to breed, your gonna have to give them enough room to even think about breeding. Comfort and space is the main neccesity for these fish to even pair up. But if they did/do decide to breed, chances of sucess in hatching eggs would be a long shot.

Let them mature and once you start seeing territorial issues and some protectiveness towards another RB then its time to seperate and hope you get lucky

your chances are not great ....however 7 months ago i bought 3 reds at dime size. one of them died so i bought another, then 2 months ago i bought another red that is 5.5 inches.

just this last friday i found eggs in my 45 gal tank that houses all four of these reds and alos a 7 inch oscar.

im sure that these fish are very stressed and stuff from being crowded but they went and did the wild thing.

dont let anyone tell you its not possible, because it is.
