What would you recommend?
I am getting a 5-10 gallon tank, and I was wondering what the easiest livebearing fish to care for/breed would be. Thanks! :-D

I'd suggest guppies or platys.
I know for sure guppies are super easy to breed. I started with 6 and now I have well over 50, and I didn't even take any special precautions like a breeder box or net.
Many livebearers eat their young . Being as how you expressed an interest in breeding I would suggest you look at some used 10 gal. tanks and a larger tank or tanks as well.

Will do, thanks y'all
I actually have had a 10 gallon with some platys, and WITHOUT babies D :

Guppies breed like rabbits. If you're going to mix males and females in the same tank just prepare for a population explosion. You can't avoid it, its going to happen. So if you're going to breed them have a plan for dealing with all the young they will produce.

Endler's livebearers stay smaller than fancy guppies - about the size of feeder guppies. The males have some amazing colors, and they don't eat their fry.

I'd say endlers or guppies, just cuz mollies, platies and swordtails are larger. You won't have room for a single drop of mollies once they're grown in a 10G tank.
