Breeding neons is not easy; Water parameters are critical, and light (or more accurately darkness) is important. Also, having fish that will spawn is a factor.

There's good advice at Seriously Fish, here's the direct link: http://www.seriouslyfish.com/profile.php?genus=Paracheirodon&species=innesi&id= 93

Are you breeding them just because it's hard to get more any other way? If so, can't you just have your LFS order some for you? Or go to a different pet store? Neon tetras are very, very common aquarium fish...
