As lent ends this weekend, I gave up buying anything fish related, I am looking to set up a 10 gallon next to my bed. I would like this tank to be interactive and am looking into breeding and then selling spawn to local stores. What can I breed and grow out in a 10? Something relatively simple (And cheap! I’m a High school student). I’ve heard you can do honey Gouramis but I wasn’t too sure

Shrimp and snails would probably be best in that size tank. Most fish you breed will need larger tanks or more 10 gallon grow out tanks... snails and shrimp could probably Thrive in a 10 gallon as long as your selling them frequent enough that you don’t get over run ... good luck !!

I would say inverts would be the better bet, you can breed fish in a 10 gallon just fine, the problem comes up when you need to let them grow out big enough to sell them.

Shrimp and snail! A single 10 gallon is not suitable for breeding fish. You would need at least an another 10 gallon...

I have a 10gal. I have a female molly... she had babies. And then the other residents including the mother began eating the babies. I ended up moving the surviving fry to a second 10 gal until I find homes for a few of them. I would definitely have a second tank at least elsewhere for fry if you don't want them eaten, or space reduced due to separating parent(s) from their children. Even with guppies
