In today's day and age, size is not as much of a factor as age is. Your fish CAN start breeding at about 8-10 months old HOWEVER, I like to wait until they are about a year old before starting to breed them. The bigger and older they are, the larger and better the eggs will be. Remember, the first few spawns are going to be either duds or have very low numbers of survivors. They get better with age
