Today I purchased 3 Golden White Cloud Mountain Minnows, I already have 3 of the normal variety, 2 females that are heavy with eggs and one male, they were outside for the best part of the summer in an 80L tub but never bred. I have now moved them indoors for the winter in an unheated tank but they are still showing no signs of breeding, the male just does not seem interested. I have added the goldens in with them, not 100% which are males/females as they are still quite small but read larger groups spawn better, just curious if they will breed with the golds seeing as they are the same fish just a different colour variation? it may just be that the male needs some more competition hopefully!

Yes, the two colours will breed together.
