Breeding fish is pretty straight forward: You choose healthy fish, those that are active in the tank, good bodies, good color, no blemishes. Buy several fish at a time, 4 to 1 females to males. Maintain pure water conditions. Large, weekly water changes are most important. Feed a good diet: Mostly frozen, a little freeze dried and very little flaked and feed just a bit a couple of times a day. Get an assortment of plants into the tank, both floating and planted.
Larger tanks are preferable to small ones. There's more room for privacy.
That's pretty much it. You don't need to worry about when the fry will arrive, just focus on the above items and you'll be rewarded.
