Just wondering

The molly fish are really easy to breed. @ petsmart they have a lot of fish in the tank that are already pregnant. That is where I got mine. All you have to do is choose the really round fat one.

Easiest fish to breed by far is the Guppy. Add 1 male & 1 female to any container that holds water and presto, pregnant mom. No human interaction required. If you want to raise the fry, it's a little more extensive.

Zebras would have to be #2 easiest after Guppies. You have to make the tank viable for them to spawn (which is not THAT hard lol) which is not true of Guppies. It's also a little more involved to raise the fry

Kribensis! Lovely fish and multiply like rabbits. Egg layers that spawn in a cave and make great parents.

All I ever had to do was vacuum some water out and put it in another tank. Babies appeared. I just fed them fry food. Super easy lol.

How about Convicts? I've heard they breed well, but have never had any.

Oh man, cons breed like nuts. Get a male and a female and you will have fry coming out of your ears, since they protect their young They get super aggressive when breeding, though.
