I have kept tanks for a few years and never have been really successful breeding anything. I have a few tanks but a 10g as become slowly emptied i would love to try and breed some type of fish. it seems like guppies would be the best choice. if anybody can give me some tips on getting started that would be a huge help. Thanks!
Honestly breeding guppies is probably the easiest thing to do, all you need is one male to every three females. If your fish eat the fry before you notice that your fish have given birth then planting your tank helps hide the fry until they can be removed to a grow out tank or fry net. The baby fish will eat finely crushed fish flakes. It helps to be able to tell how far along your guppies are in their pregnancy and removing them to a breeding trap before the give birth... But I don't have any luck at judging how far along they are.
And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

1 gallon is too small for a breeding tank in my opinion... you could keep the fry in there afterwords with a sponge filter. id use at least a 10 g for the breeding tank. you can use any kind of plant (live or artificial... or both) as long as the fry are somewhat hidden... i've never had problems with cannibalism with guppies.
Bow down to MTS!!!!!!!!
My relatives have close to 100 guppies because they are constantly breeding them. all they do is move the pregnant guppy to their birthing tank, put them in a seperating birthing plastic thingy ( forgot what it is called ) and POOF!! babies
