Swordtail breeding?

I have a pair of koi swords and was hoping to keep their gorgeous coloring in the tank. At what age (approx) do they start to breed, and is there anything I can do to help (mood lighting, "Let's Get it On" playing 24/7, etc )?

Well sword tails are related to platies and I have heard that platies do better with a little aquarium salt. I personally do not do that with my platies and they breed like crazy.
Hope this helps.

If that's the case, they'll be doing the bump 'n' grind soon enough...the couple of platies I have seem to be pregnant all the time.
