I am adding an outlet box. The box I am tapping into has 12/3 wire. What is the correct way to add on to this to put another box further over on the wall?

I think I figured it out.
The little metal tab between the screws holding the red and black wire had to be snapped out for it to work.
I guess it was arking.
I will finnish the job and let you know what happened
