I'm curious to know what fish people are working with. Are you trying to spawn the fish or did nature take its course?

I am currently raising some turquoise rainbowfish. I have some really nice green guppies, red wag platies and red wag swordtails. I am also working with American Flagfish. My koi and goldfish are in the pond and nature seems to take its course with them as I have to thin the pond stock every year.

Fish that are growing out right now to breed down the road.

Satanoperca Leucosticta
Thorichthys Affinis
Amphilophus Nourissati
Neetroplus Nematopus
Heros sp. 'red shoulders'
Tomocichla Sieboldii
Paratheraps Hartwegi
Thorichthys Meeki
Herichthys Bartoni
Parachromis Dovii

And fish that are either spawning now or that I have mature pairs of.

Mesonauta Festivus
Hypselecara Temporalis
Neolamprologus Tetracanthus
Cryptoheros Nigrofasciatus
Gymnogeophagus cf. Gymnogenys
Gymnogeophagus n. sp. Blue Neon
Gymnogeophagus Australis
Gymnogeophagus Labiatus
Gymnogeophagus n. sp. Paso Pache
Geophagus Steindachneri
Australoheros cf. Scitulus
Australoheros sp. Red Ceibal

I think that does it for now.

Gouramiguy whydo you say breeding guppies was hard? Ido have a friend ask how I get the numbers I do, but I just get healthy large females and have 4 males, like I say the drops average around 30 fry, I feed with a mix of tetramin flakes, spirulina flake, and high grade spirulina powder,and ocassional dried bloodworms and daphnia. Dunno if I'm just being lucky! But seems no way hard here? =s

I'm not breeding any fish. My convicts, guppies, and JD's do it against my advice

Right now, I am breeding Apisto atahualpa, Thai mosaic guppies, Tequila sunrise guppies, neolamprologus pulcher "daffodil" (they just moved, may not spawn again for a while lol, but have spawned several times).

Now that I have a fishroom going and can separate the fish I want to breed, I hope to breed Apisto panduro, Apisto agassizi "Alenquer", Peruvian redspotted angels (not sure if I have a m/f lol), Micropoecilia picta "red", metae cories, longfin bristlenose plecos, longfin calico bristlenose plecos, lepidiolamprologus hecqui, and Julidochromis transcriptus. Hopefully my fish will all get "in the mood" soon!

I am a fan of dwarf cichlids. What do you do with the extra fry?

If this is directed at me, I am doing my best to raise their fry. I managed to get some of the A. atahualpa fry out of the display tank and am working on growing them out. The others are still with the parents and basically I'm experimenting to see if I do better, or if the parents do better even though there is a big angel in that tank. My other apistos have not spawned (YET) but I've seen the females start to color up so I'm really hopeful. If all goes well and I can get some fry to grow out, I will try to sell them.

I'd be interested in purchasing when you are ready to sell some. I really like apistos.

Glofish. I am not intentioanlly breeding them, whicis prohibited by copyright, but they are still prolific breeders in a community tank. I find the babies in my water change bucket and suck them out with turkey baster, then put them in a breeding met in my ten gal grow out tank. I am not breeding them, but i am raising the natural result of having a school of zebra danio
