    I've never had any experience with tetras, but for endlers you just put in a male with a female. It is that easy. Soon you will be overrun with baby endlers. The hard part is with making sure they grow to their full potential. in small spaces such as breeding nets, the fry(especially males) stunt easily. i also have heard that adult males release certain chemicals that inhibit the growth of male fry. this means that unless you have a fairly big tank you probably should pull the fry out to a separate tank for raising in order to get the biggest male fry. For cories, raise the temperature by 2-3 degrees Celsius for two weeks or so, and after that do a large cool water change(if possible with soft water) to bring the temperature down several degrees. This should simulate a dry spell followed by a heavy rain.

    neons are going to be really hard - near impossible without lot's of work
    cory's - are doable but again difficult as they will eat the eggs, to get spawning behaiour raise the temp and add some cool water, simulating rain. Eggs need to be removed or parents so let the eggs hatch,
    Endlers - 1 male 3 female water

    i see someone beat me to it
    6ft Australian Fresh water turtle tank - 2 macleay river turtles, numerous guppy at varying stages of development.

    5ft 150gal planted discus tank - 8 discus, 10 cardinal tetras, 10 rummnose, 6 albino cories, and breeding RCS in tank sump and just about everywhere everything done from scratch, filtration and stand tank
