Saltwater Fish - Easy Breeders?

This is mostly out of curiousity, but are there any "easy" saltwater fish for breeding? No, its not to make money off of them. I just always enjoyed raising guppies in my freshwater tanks, well that was quite a few years ago. I wouldn't mind attempting the same thing with a saltwater fish.

I heard clowns mate a lot but rarely do the eggs make it to fryhood. At least that's my understanding. That's be great if they were easy breeders though :p

I don't want to say there are easy saltwater fish to breed but there are a few that are easier. Clownfish and Cardinals off the top of my head are two that are breed pretty often. You will need to hatch baby brine and possibly keep a culture of rotifiers to feed the newly hatched fish. I have heard you don't need to keep cultures of phyto going now that they have a phyto paste you can buy. There is a pretty well defined process out there to breed them but it is a LOT of work.
