| || | Breeding platties or guppies in my community tank....
I'm seriously looking into breeding platties or guppies. I currently have a 20 gallon community with 3 male red wag platties, 5 zebra danios, 2 mystery snails, and a flame gourami. I have one corner of the tank heavily planted for Py the Gourami.
I have a 1 gallon betta tank for use as a hospital tank.
Could I breed platties or guppies in my community tank and save a few to raise in my 1 gallon? Would the other fish be able to eat enough of the fry to keep from over populating?
(Seeing as how I've already got 3 male platties, I'm thinking that I'll have to go to guppies to breed so I don't have to get 6 or so females.)
