In terms of breeding fish ... I'll let those that have rearing fry comment.
Does the LFS
carry shrimp? If so also consider breeding RCS. Every LFS
I go to that has them charges $4 a pop and they get them for $1 a piece. I ask and they really only have a couple of breeders they get shrimp from whereas the fish have multiple breeders, plus they only get a few RCS at a time.
Breeding RCS is relatively simple ... keep good water, a stable temp some low light plants(java moss a must), DW and they do the rest. No need to separate the young, the adults don't attack them. I've had my RCS tank going for 2 weeks and already have 6 young, 2 berried females and another 2 saddled.
