It isn't the best pic but it is the only one I have available at the moment. My female has a fresh battle wound by her gill cover.

Nowhere near as impressive as your list, but I've bred the following:

Kribensis cichlids
Mystery snails
Pond snails (should I even include these? haha)
Golden wonder killifish
I'm pretty sure my zebra danios lay eggs all the time but they just get eaten
My peppered corydoras have laid eggs countless times but they always get eaten

All of these were pretty much accidental, although I got mixed sexes of the guppies and swordtails on purpose to provide fry for my other fish to snack on.

Yeah I hear you. If I get hybrids they become feeders for my oscars.[/u]

wow what an impressive list :D. im embaressed to say that i have only breed swordtails as my platies were already pregnant, oh but i have swordtail- platy mix and my bronze catfish have breed XD. Nice list :D any baby pictures?

i am new to i am trying to breed bettas key word trying... but my guppys and swords are cross breeding like mad hehe...but they make cute fishys

Just be careful about where those hybrid fry's hard enough to get a pure species as it is, so there's no need to introduce more mixes to the industry. However, for personal keeping and feeders, enjoy :)

southafrica1001 09-16-2008 07:48 AM

yep no way im giving my swordtail/platy mixes to my lfs, if i get overcrowded im going to have to give my either some mickey mouse platies, or swordtails up. XD. but if friends need fish then i suppose letting them have the mixes would be fine?

AquaParadise2012 09-23-2008 12:24 AM

i breed danios, guppies, neon tetras, tailpia, cherry barbs and soon CPD and Kribensis.
