Can Feeder Guppies breed?

I have two fire bellied toads, and I keep there tank stocked with at least three guppies. I got some more today, and have about 7 in a one gallon tank in my bathroom. I really want to see some eggs. But is this possible without anyplants and such small guppies. Do I need to buy some of those fancy guppies? Thanks. Here is a picture of my holder tank.

They will breed but their gene pool is really really bad. Stick with healthy Guppies.

I'm probably mis-interpreting you, but Guppies are livebearers , or are you on about the toads ????!

Guppies will breed like, well guppies. I breed them as well as mollies for feeders. I started with a great quality pair of each and added 3 extra females to the mix. Works out well and they even look great. Good luck.
