never had guppies myself, but I know they have hundres of fry from one mating. I think my swordtails started getting knocked up after about 2 months from birth.

as far as I know guppies are the fastest. they don't have as far to grow before they're full size.

Livebearers are fast breeders.... (platys, guppies, swordtails, mollies)

After that, I'd say the easiest fish to breed are rosy red minnows- also sold as feeder fish.
They are egg layers, but they build a next and the male guards the fry.

Why are you wondering? Looking for good feeder fish?
I'd probably look for some endler-guppy hybrids- Guppies eat their own young, while endlers tend not to.

Ghost shrimp and Red cherry shrimp are extremely easy to breed... With the RCS, in optimum conditions, a colony can grow by about 20% every week or so.

Do you know. After breeding once how long they need to breed again ?

I never had platy fish before but I was planning for some. I like livebarers. Breeding is fun I guess. I hope very soon my Molly will give birth :)

Thanks mate I have paty and molly . I am not looking for feeder fish for now as I dont have any big fish yet :) . As I am getting a new tank for me, I want to use my old tank for breeding lots of fast growing fish thats why I was asking this question :) . Breeding lots of fish in my tank will make me happy :D And the shrip thing you said is cool I will bring some shirmp too. but Can they live with Dwarf blue gouramis ?
