Help stock fish room expansion

First off don't know exactly were to put this so mods move as necessary.

Ok I need YOUR help in stocking my expansion to the fish room ill list tanks sizes that I have. The fish need to have been bred at least once before in a aquarium, (no fish that have never bred in aquariums) be realistically easy to breed I'm not talking like guppy easy but preferably not like kuhil loach difficulty but ill try anything really. And you'll feel great in knowing the you helped a fellow AA member out.

Tank sizes:
10 gallon: 18 of them
20 long: 12 of them
20 high: 6 of them
55: 5-10
5 gallon fry tanks:16

I already have albino Corey cats, kribs, jewel cichlids, RCS, and several others but ill breed different species of Cory's, etc.

One more thing. When you tell me what you think I should breed list the breeding tank size that you think I should use. Don't worry about losing other tanks that are needed.

id be happy with anything i could get past the egg stage. discuss would be sweet to breed although they may be difficult. i think could do them in 20s but since you got 55s and they raise there young you might go that route.

Neolamprologus multifasciatus. Could be done in a 10 but a 20 long would be ideal. I see many ask where to get them because they can't find them. They breed like rabbits but grow slow.

Peacock gudgeons in a 20 long. They need little caves and tubes for breeding but they lay fairly easily at 80 to 82 degrees. Planted of course.

Id do some shell dwellers of some kind, not necessarily multis but maybe some sumbu shell dwellers. Also some rarer forms of Bristle nose plecos might be cool. Green dragons or super reds would be ideal. I would buy some off you at a price for sure!

ya I'll figure out what to do with all the fry… most of the shrimp are about the same the CRS prefer a little bit harder water I think.

right now I have around 30 jewel cichlids, several corys, some kribs, and too many RCS to count

When doing the multi tank use PVC elbows instead of shells. Cap one end this way when you want to remove them for sale you just pull the cap off and can dump them out. If you use shells they will swim as far into the shell as they can and if you lift the shell it will get an air pocket and they can get stuck.
