Not correct!No livebearers would work in a 5g if you're even thinking of reproducing them. All of them reproduce at a fast pace, say 30 or so fry a month.
Depending on what kind of endler, the reproduction can be explosive or just consisting of a couple of fry. Even the size depends on the strain. Even if I consider pure endlers. For there are N-class endlers as well which grow up larger than the average ones like, e.g. light blue top swords. And be aware of it that female endlers (both N- and K-class) have the potential to grow up the same size as a female guppy. Most female endlers are smaller for they are fertilized at an earlier age. so, the growth potential will go to the development of the new fry instead to the female's bodylength.Chromedome52 beat me to it. There's also some other types that may work, like endlers (real endlers) or Micropoecilia parae males.
I do feel that I have to make some corrections overhere after reading your reply.They all reproduce fast! I have found though my mollies seem to have the most fry compared to my guppies and platies.
I don't feel like any of them are pushovers and seem to do well in my community tank. The mollies are the most "aggressive" but mostly with food ha ha. They don't need salt. They DO however need hard water (greater than 175 or so is ideal). Mollies especially need the harder water, though they all need it.
I have all the fish in my signature below sharing the same tank and everyone gets along fab. The only two bosses in the tank are the ram and the gourami, everyone else just happily lives with everyone else. I should clarify that I have an all female tank though.
