Question Glass Catfish and Neon Tetras

So, my mom and I are fairly new aquarists, and have a few questions about a few fish;

I've seen a few places people have managed to breed their glass cats, what're the mating behaviors, and what do pregnant females look like?
What is the gestation period for neon tetras, we have one we know is pregnant, and we're just wondering when we would expect to see eggs.

We expect out of our fish who do end up mating for the plecostomus and the shrimp to eat the eggs, along with our cherry barbs which seem to enjoy hunting them down. If any eggs do survive and then the fry survive we'll end up removing them to avoid overcrowding our tank.

Thanks for any answers.

Apparently breeding glass catfish isn't easy, but here's one person's experience:

PlanetCatfish.com - Captive spawning of Glass Catfish • Reproduction • Shane's World • www.planetcatfish.com

2x20-longs, one heavily planted. Platy rancher. They. Won't. Stop. Breeding.
