 Hi Sujoy,
 Yes, they breed in a tank although they are considered difficult to breed.
The major difficulty seems to lie in the fact that no one seems to be
exactly sure of what conditions it takes for them to breed -- some novices
find them breeding in their tanks and some experienced hands have problems.
In general it's agreed that you want to condition the fish, do a large water
change and expose the tank to sunlight. They are egg scatterers. I had some
breed in a 40 gallon tank back when I was a kid and had no idea what I was
doing with fish. I can tell you that they were in very soft, acidic water I
hadn't done any conditioning, probably no water changes, and definitely no
 I'm sure if you google "breed Congo Tetra - Phenacogrammus interruptus"
you'll get a ton of conflicting informtaion.
