I've kept these at work for over 12 years now with multiple reproductions. Things you need to know, gestation is between 10 and 11 months and the adults will eat the offspring. Youngest recorded age to partition is 18 months but is usually closer to 24 months.
Reproduction can be stimulated in the same manner as with many tropical fish by doing a large water change with distiled or RO water.
There is an article in one of the older Reptilia magazines on the care and breeding of this species (http://www.reptilia.net/html_english/ultimo_numero.asp?num=17) You can probably still order a copy of the issue.
