Nature will have to take its course. There is no way to rush it. you will just have to have patience.

On a side note: Goldfish are a cold water fish, and 24c is way too warm for them. You'll have to figure out a way to get that tank cooled down, maybe then breeding will happen.....what size is your tank?

I have heard of a lot of breeding in ponds but very rarely in aquaria unless it is very large. Lots of plants in the pond with live foods gives them a boost to spawn. Also, more females than males is always a good choice so you see some competition from the females for the males attention.
