I don't know the answer , it was more a question to see what species you came up. I have to agree with the salmon producing the most though. What about aquarium fish only ?

Salmon are saltwater fish... fresh water spawners.

Hard to tell some egg layers spawn in groups.... so if you are ok with Technicalities Then Cory Cats or Killifish, grunions, basically colony breeders will produce the most fry in an typical aquarium if your going for quantity Pete Mang is selling a breeding colony of Albino Cory Cats right now on aquabid I would buy them if i had an extra 10 gallon to spawn them in I just don't want to use a 30 gallon to spawn fish, plus my husband would kill me if i spent more money on fish this month.

Yeah, that's why I said technically, as they spawn in fresh and the fry can live in the fresh for something like up to 2 years before they make it back to the ocean.

*They call me, Amanda*
Tank 1: (29 gal planted) empty
Tank 2: (15 gal) empty

They can often lay about 100-200 eggs, defend their young, and can live 20+ years spawning every 2-3 weeks. (if the fry are removed)
Really? I've never heard of a betta living longer than 8 years.
