Breeding/Fry tank plan

Hello everyone! I figured while im setting up a new QT tank, why not set up a fry or breeding tank too? Id like to see your thoughts on this.

Im hoping to have completely sand as a substrate. Im also looking into some live plants that make a nice canopy for them to hide in, and i also plan on plenty of java moss. this is a 10 gallon tank btw.

i figure illtry my hand at platys, guppies, and other livebearers, then move on to stuff like gouramis, gbrs and the like.

i posted on the other one and il post here :P
i agree! go for livebearers and get experience, then go more complicated. do ur other tanks ever get fry in?
and apparantly java moss is great for hiding fry and feeding them.
i have a 10gal breeder, its good enough to grow them in

Do you mean you are setting up 2 tanks, a qt and a breeding/fry tank? Or are you using one tank for both?
