20 gallon tank stocking ideas
I need ideas for stocking my 20 gallon tank. I would like to breed different fish in it. Thanks

If you are looking to breed, I'd say livebearers such as Mollies, Guppies, Swordtails, Endlers and Platys. They are beautiful fish and very easy to breed. They come in many different colors, especially Guppies.

You could do guppies and mollies, but that's BORING. Everyone has those fish.

Why not try some tetras? :P There are all different types.


Put a lot of fake/real plants in the tank and a few caves and get DWARF PUFFERS

It all really depends on the difficulty of breeding you're looking for.

Breeding tetras can be a daunting task..........Getting your water to a lower Ph to trigger a spawn is not the easiest thing to pull off, plus you will need a way to keep them from eating their eggs...........Alot more to breeding tetras than just putting them in a seperate tank....For a beginner, i suggest livebearers............Make sure you have an extra tank or 2 for all the fry to grow up in......Good Luck!

As for the second tanks to grow fry in, if they start off with only two or three and only save some of the babies, they'll be fine for a little while. THEN they'll start needing another tank.

i want to breed some thing harder than livebarers

You could breed Bettas, but that requires a lot of money, space and time.

Nah, how bought zebra daniomo's, are they easy to breed
