Oh, and to make sure its not too crowded, this is what I have so far...
a Cherry Shrimp
2 Molly (but one seems really ill)
Some Molly fry
Tons of seasnails (but they are tiny)
One unknown fish (about 2")
But my fish keep dying recently. I bought new ones recently so one must of brought in an infection :(
The fish that I can think of that are cheap and easy to breed are one that you already have, the Guppy and then there's the Swordtail, I've bred both . The sword comes in some nice colors and its easy to tell when the female is ready, her belly will be real big and you'll start to see black spots around her anus ( these are the eyes of the fry). You might want to get a little bigger tank though, maybe a 20g long if you want to breed some fish, it will give you enough space for a fry net to seperate them from the others without having to have another tank to raise them and it would be better for the swords if you decide to go with them. One thing about the sword though, you'll need a breeding compartment, it will let the fry drop down into a seperate space from the female because she will eat them if not seperated.
