Try swordtails or platies if you want livebearers. But they require more space and have a bigger bioload. Another choice is Danios or some egglayers just read up on how to breed them if you so choose. I have swordtails and Danios and My swords are 2nd and 3rd generation(only 3 left).

you could try some kribensis pulcher or taniatus, the rams mikrogeophagus ramerizi, endlers a guppy relative, betta splendens , white clouds, and various danios and barbs....oh and lets not forget the apistogramas...ADIOS...

60l so that's a 15 gallon were talkin about.

Cherry barbs are Pretty, Small & easy to raise young from, Just need lots of Java moss for the eggs and young to hide.
White clouds are really neat too, and easy to get spawning's from. java moss is also good for the young & eggs.

I have a 15 here with just Cherry shrimp in it.
Have another I keep my adult mollies into that I plan on keeping young from,
Watersprite or floating mats are good, But you will need a bigger tank to transfer the young too once a few weeks old, mollies can produce big drops at least 100 and the fry are born much bigger than a guppy fry.

Always in NEED & looking for more Tanks!

Why are you getting rid of your Guppies? I probably missed that in another thread, sorry. Did you breed Guppies as well? Did you sell the babies? How many tanks do you have? Just curious as I noticed my first baby in the Guppy tank this morning. Don't want an explosion of population and am running through some scenarios in my head as to how to handle it. Is that why you are ridding yourself of Guppies?
