    So I have a small 25 litre tank and am wanting to put some fish in it.
    What are some small fish that can be bred in there?

    I was thinking Blue Rams

    Blue rams might not be happy in this tank.
    You may be able to put some small tetra(s) in there
    Maybe White Cloud Minnows (3-5 of them)
    You could also do 3 female guppies, 1 male.

    There would be a population explosion if you keep the guppies. And then your tank would be overstocked.
    White Cloud Minnows are suitable and also they are very hardy .

    I think guppies and the rams are too active for a tank of this size. Endlers and small killifish (if they can be kept in such a small tank) are probably the only fish that can be easily bred in a tank so small. You could do a betta or a small goby.

    What kind of plants would you suggest for this 6.6 gallon tank?
    I am new to small tanks.
    I have also purchased a pro led z series, which has a colour temperature of 8000 to 10000k

    Also I will probably be keeping shrimp in this tank.
    And how many hours of light would you recommend?

    6-8 hours is a good amount so that its harder for algae to grow

    I would not keep blue rams, white cloud mountain minnows, or guppies in a 6 gallon tank. WCMMs also should be kept in groups of 6+ not 3-4.

    WCMMs need a 15 gallon minimum, same with the rams, and guppies need a 10g min.

    I would get a betta, nothing else.

    If you really want to breed then small species of killifish would be your best bet.
