Here's a few of my successful experiences.
1. Guppy - Besides the usual water condition check, these guys breed like there's no tomorrow, and each batch produces about 60-100 babies in a span of 3~4 months, so i'd suggest you get a nursery tank
- I breed mine in a huge flower pot :D with lotus on it
2. Betta's - depending on your water temperature, these guys are easy as well, just be prepared before the babies starts to swim freely. Infusorias should be prepared at the moment the eggs are released
- breed these in a 3foot(l) x2foot(w) x 2foot(h) tank
3. Cichlids - Keep in pairs, if its a communal tank, chances are the eggs will be eaten unless sufficient hiding spots are provided.The parents guard the eggs but they might slack a little sometimes
- 6foot(l)x 4foot(w) x4foot(h) tank
4. Gourami - Same as betta, only difference is gourami eggs floats naturally (less stress for the daddy fish)
5. Mollies are just as easy as platies.
(I just dumped them in a communal tank and it all went naturally)
I did all this at the room temperature of 27-29Celcius(i live in malaysia, tropical weather, so i don't use heaters on my tank)
Pm me if u want/need any tips on breeding any of those guys above.
