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

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

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...
