I want to cross breed live bearing fish for no purpose other than pleasure and having unique-ish looking fish.
I have a separate tank in which I intend to place the females and males. I recognize I need more females than males.
What I would like to know is, which fish make for good (or possible) cross-breeding?
Guppies (males) have the beautiful fins - is there another fish I can cross them with?
Is there a molly / something combination that creates a neat breed?
Thank you so much for your input / ideas
As far as I am aware, swords and platies are the only two types that will cross breed. If it was possible to cross breed the other types of livebearers it would have been done long ago, given that they are mostly kept in community tanks.
