what are the easiest besides guppies?

Any livebearer will breed readily.

Danios and some species of corydoras are also usually quite easy to breed.

Convicts are super easy and much more hardy than any livebearer.

kribensis are easy, its just u need a group so they can pair off on their own

Platties are the easiest to breed and you will have more than you could ever know what to do with in a short time period. Lots of plants or a second tank to put the female in a large net breeder and you can have hundreds in a matter of months.

Live bearers: Guppies second, Swords third, mollies 4th

Sorry can't help with egg layers as I have only once ghotten my cories to lay eggs. Danios are supposed to super easy if you have large gravel or lats of hiding places so the eggs don't get eaten and the fry can hide.

easy livebearers: guppies (trust me i've had experience), platies, mollies, swordtails

egg layers: corys, CHERRY BARBS(they are so pretty), danios, tiger barbs(i'm not sure how easy because i've never bred them but many other people on this site have so ask around) :wink:

A guy at the fish store told me Ablino Bristlenose Plecos were really easy to breed. I don't know if its true or if he was just trying to make a sale. Does anyone know if it's true? Plecos are my favorite and would love to breed them.

If oyu keep them fed a good varied diet of both protein and vegetables they can be very easy to breed. They also need a larger tank, 20 gallons minimum so they can establish some sort of territory. I think the proper ration is 2 males to a female and she will either pick one to breed with or breed with both. Just make sure every BN has a cave/territory to call it's own or you might see some pretty nasty fighting.
