Genetic faults created by constant inbreeding don't usually happen until past the 5th or 6th generations of inbred fish. That means that a son and daughter from your original pair bred together and their son and daughter bred together and thier son and daughter bred and so on. You shouldn't need to worry about this at this point. As for how to stop the fish from breeding, keep only one sex in the tank. That's the only proven way, besides sterilization, to prevent offspring.
I'm pretty sure they don't make fish condoms yet
Hope this relieved some of the pressure
