How often they breed ? I had guppies in my tank, Dont have them anymore. from fry how long does it takes to breed them ?

car0linab0y 10-26-2010 10:39 PM

never had guppies myself, but I know they have hundres of fry from one mating. I think my swordtails started getting knocked up after about 2 months from birth.

car0linab0y I had swordtail too. both of them were female and pregnant both of them died some days ago.


Is there any other fish who is fast breeder?

as far as I know guppies are the fastest. they don't have as far to grow before they're full size.

Platys and Variatus platys?

Fun stuff :)

Livebearers are fast breeders.... (platys, guppies, swordtails, mollies)

After that, I'd say the easiest fish to breed are rosy red minnows- also sold as feeder fish.
They are egg layers, but they build a next and the male guards the fry.

Why are you wondering? Looking for good feeder fish?
I'd probably look for some endler-guppy hybrids- Guppies eat their own young, while endlers tend not to.

Ghost shrimp and Red cherry shrimp are extremely easy to breed... With the RCS, in optimum conditions, a colony can grow by about 20% every week or so.

Do you know. After breeding once how long they need to breed again ?

I never had platy fish before but I was planning for some. I like livebarers. Breeding is fun I guess. I hope very soon my Molly will give birth :)

Thanks mate I have paty and molly . I am not looking for feeder fish for now as I dont have any big fish yet :) . As I am getting a new tank for me, I want to use my old tank for breeding lots of fast growing fish thats why I was asking this question :) . Breeding lots of fish in my tank will make me happy :D And the shrip thing you said is cool I will bring some shirmp too. but Can they live with Dwarf blue gouramis ?
