What to breed?

I hv a 10g and might be getting a 13g soon. The 10g is heavily planted and I'm waiting for it to cycle. But when it is I plan to move my GBR pair to it. Would that be fine for breeding? Also with the 13g I plan to breed my Bolivian ram pair or kribs. Any thoughts?

You'll need tanks much larger than that if you intend on raising fry - no matter what species.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

I agree. I'm not a ram expert, but even livebeaers need more room than that. I would likely opt to put the rams in a larger tank to begin with. To raise fry a 20H, preferablly a 20L is necessary. If not you likely end up with a bunch of stunted fish at best.
