I don't really have a dedicated breeding setup, per se. Once I move and have to consolidate all of my tanks down into just a few, I'll have it a little more organized, but for now I just move things around as needed. For example, with some of my guppy fry, instead of isolating them to their own tank, I just let the mother give birth in an already running shrimp tank, and i'll leave the fry in there for a month or so before moving them somewhere else. The most important thing to have when breeding is several tanks.

This is what it looked like when I first set it up, I moved a lot of the tanks around though after I got some old displays so now everything except for the 40 gallon breeder racks are consolidated to the walls.

This is the rack in the back up close, it holds 6 40 breeder tanks, albeit tightly, I cracked one when moving them.

I've been downsizing everything to the point to where I only have my EBJD/JD pair breeding, a few angelfish, some red cherry shrimp and a few different guppy strains.

If it holds water, why not. It wouldn't be much to look at if you kept it above ground, since you can't see into the sides, but burying it or building a deck around it and putting it outside would be kinda cool.

Breeding fish...

I started breeding fish back in the 1960s and still breed some varieties today. I have a wealth of knowledge (I was trained by a certifed Ichthyologist) that I would like to pass along to the next generation of tropical fish hobbyists. If anyone is looking for a mentor, please send me a private message including what you would like to breed, what equipment you have and how much time you can didicate to your breeding program.
Some of the fish I have bred:
Cichlids (multiple varieties)
Goldfish
Guppies
Mollys
Platys
Swordtails
Angelfish
Discus
Gouramis
Bettas
Barbs
Tetras
Danios
Killiefish
to name a few

If you want to be a serious breeder, pm me
