You might try turning the lights off and leaving a copy of Aquarium Fish International laying next to their tank. :D

Maybe leave a bottle of wine, light some candles, and play some mood music? Also, they may need to be taught. You can try some "fishy sex education" vids. I'd make sure to give tests following the video to make sure they were watching.

You don't make any fish breed... that isn't possible. Goldfish are near impossible to sex, and 49 gallons isn't very large for goldfish. Chances are likely that they would die before they'd breed in a tank of that size. Goldfish take time to mature, which means they grow.... and to find a "pair" of goldfish, you'd have to keep a large number of them and let them pair off naturally. Mature, healthy goldfish, if in a clean and cool enough environment, will do everything on their own. Spawning is an instinct... and conditions will trigger those instints.

What kind of goldfish are they? (fan tails or comets)

Breeding habits in the different types of goldfish will be different.

I appreciated the "funny" and "cute" answers posted to this thread, and I understand why... because the original question inspires it.... but I do feel that the actual question should have been addressed by someone, even if alongside of the funnies!
