Probably the easiest fish to breed would be guppies, you could add a male and some females and then just be absolutely amazed at the amount of fry. They are livebearers so they don't lay eggs, the fry just pop right out, make sure you have a plan for all of the fry though. They are super easy to keep/breed, just make sure your tank is fully cycled, keep them fed and keep the temperature around 24 degrees Celsius. They are little rabbits

If it is a chain petstore like Petsmart, Petco, etc they most likely won't take any fish. And you could ask your LFS (Local Fish Store) but because guppies are so common I don't think they would take any off your hands or if they do then most likely not the entire batch of fry. You could try Craiglist too but that wouldn't be consistent, I'm sure there are some guppy breeders on here who could better tell you what they do with their fry, sorry I can't help much in that department

For a challenge you could do a breeding pair of German Blue rams in a 10 gallon, only them though and they are pretty sensitive to water quality. Or oyu could do their hardier "cousins" Boliviam rams. Or apistos, although I've had no experience with apistos so I can't help you there. IME GBRs are beautiful fish and I've bred them once on accident in a community tank and it was definitely very exciting. Or if you're thinking of breeding but want something that isn't a fish, breeding shrimp like Cherry shrimp is very fun and their colors are amazing although they are pretty easy to breed.

Breeding bettas, from what I've heard, can be very difficult. I wouldn't recommend it with your setup. You can likely breed guppies, small killifish, endlers, snails, or neocaridina shrimp.
