newbie here

Hi everyone i joined this site to get advice on my aquarium that i just got. my dad had an aquarium when i was a kid and i thought it would be cool to get one.i already have bette in a one galon mini tank. i recently got a ten gallon tank and now have three cory cats one of which is a panda cory and the other two i believe are spotted corys.ialso have two male guppys.i originally didn't want any females so they would not mate.however I've been reading online how easy it is to breed guppies and was curious to see if i could do it for some easy money. so my first question is do i need a seperate tank to breed them in.

Hi welcome

I've found guppies will breed in an old water-filled shoe on the side of the road. If you can get 2fm to one male that will reduce stress on the fm's.

For growing out fry another tank is useful. Not sure if you can make much money from them.

Talk to your local fish store. I used to breed them and trade them for aquarium products.

A five gallon would be sufficient. I believe Cory's would be ok with the fry.
