What are the best fish to breed?
I am looking for two species of fish to breed, they don't have to be easy I want two species.

Depends on what you mean by "best" to breed. Do you mean the most people want to own them so there is a market for the fry? Do you mean, easy, just toss them together and wait for the fry to show up?
Places to sell them?

Most people want to own them because of the market I would think, I really don't care

Many cichlids are very interesting because most provide brood care, but most if not always the parent fish can't raise the fry in captivity, my personal favorite is the German Blue Ram or Microgeophagus Ramirezi. We need to know your tank size water parameters, etc.

You could always breed guppies.. That's always fun and interesting.

Guppies and Bettas are fantastic breeding projects!
You can go for feeder guppies, or Fancy guppies.
Theres also many different tail types in the bettas.

You can also do Swordtails, Platies, Gourami, ect. Theres a market for most community tank fish.

livebearers are too easy I have already bred them. maybe fighters, but my cousin has got them so arrr. I'll see I wanna breed dwarf gouramis

From what I've read, breeding gourami and breeding bettas are quite similar.

dmuddle 03-06-2012 10:08 PM

yea I would assume so, they are both anabantoids, and they both build bubble nests

Well yhe best of luc to ye then!
Let us know when your going to start breeding, if you do breed them, and be sure to post pictures and kep us updated!
I've never seen Gourami spawn, nor have I ever seen what the fry look like so it'll be interesting to see!
Have fun!
