I am interested in Breeding fish. I want to start with something simple, like Guppies or Mollies. I have never bred fish before, but I want to try it. This is what I know so far.
-I need a Breeder Box/net.
-Guppies and Mollies can produce a lot of babies.
My LFS will buy/trade for the fry, just in case anyone is wondering.
In my tank right now, I have 2 Red Platys, 2 Zebra danios and 2 Neon Tetras. I only have a 5 Gallon, so I know I can't take a lot more. I will probably wait for some to pass away before I add any more fish.
I usually keep the temperature around 76-80.
What is the easiest to breed in a community tank; Platies, Mollies, or Guppies? What is the best gender ratio for each fish?
Oh, say I get 2 more platies sometime toadd with my 2 current platies that I think are both female. If I get one male and one female, will it help the breeding?
