Wondering which fish reproduce less than the others?
Right now we have mollies and we know we are going to have more babies here soon and it gets to be overwhelming especially when our mollies don’t seem to eat any of them. Sounds bad but last time we had about 15 that survived and had to try and rehome them all.

Livebearers are the most prolific. That will be your mollies, platies, guppies, endlers, etc. Egg scatterer species like tetras and rasboras are less likely to spawn, or if they do, their eggs usually get eaten.

Males reproduce less .. I've never had fry from male guppies, male platies, male gouramis ... LOL. <teasing ... but it's the truth! I normally buy males of the species I enjoy like the many livebearers without dealing with fry>.

Dont do males and females and you won't have an issue.

Beyond that, stay away from live bearers, i.e., guppies, endlers, platys, mollies, etc.
