    I have guppies, they breed themselves. Just add fish and babies will follow.

    mollies, they are so easy to raise and great fun for my daughters... they also teach responsibility and love for animals

    Several species of livebearers, more than a dozen cichlids species, BN pleco's, and I now have the first wigglers from my L-10a red lizard whiptails.
    Working on Synodontis petricola, and have L-333's and L-304's growing out.
    I currently have endler's, brown and albino BN, and A. oblongum juvies

    I answered Cichlids, livebearers and others.

    To clarify others: Rainbowfish (I have one sole survivor so far but got breeders tanks with juveniles M. lacustris, I. werneri, G. incisus, and adults M. boesemani; my M. splendida splendida are genetically "weak" so I keep them in a community tank).

    I have this obstinate project of breeding Rainbowfish that raise and adapt to live in usual fishkeeping conditions in my City. It's a long term project. I finally got a reputable source in Jakarta, Indonesia for mostly healthy specimens.

    I keep enough infusoria with small FW crustaceans in small tanks placed outdoors (the sunlight is the best for this) some have sponge filtration, others use substrate and plants for the nitrogen cycle.
