Easiest Fish To Breed?

I was thinking of breeding bettas, but I'm not so sure.
Tell me what you think, and what you think is easiest to breed.

As a general rule, livebearing fish are easier to breed than fish that lay eggs. Fry that are born live are much bigger and easier to feed than fry that have hatched from eggs, and so they have a head start in live. It takes weeks to raise a cory fry from the time it hatches until the time it is as big as a new born guppy.

I'd go for Guppies, as long as you are prepared and have a place to keep or give the fry away to. There's lots of topics in the Livebearer section that will probably help you out.

The pink pair was probably the best parents ever. They viciously attacked anything that was inserted into the water, including my digits. God bless them, they were angelic parents
Definetly convicts. They would breed in a puddle of water during an earthquake caused by a volcano explosion if given half a chance. (That was a bit of an exaggeration) Rabbits cant hold a candle to convicts. Seriously, a convict can put out more babies than a two pairs of rats and two pairs of rabbits combined.

Molly’s can produce huge quantities of fry, but they can be slow breeders and have one of the longest pregnancy times for livebearers plus their fry can take over a year till they are full grown- molly’s also chow down their own fry like there’s no tomorrow given a chance and their fry often die when they don't have enough room to grow...
Either way though when it comes to breeding any fish, make sure you have space for the fry as they mature and somewhere for them to go to when they grow up, with fish like guppy’s its easy to get over-run with them they are so successful at breeding.

Think about it- guppies will endlessly chase females to breed, with more males it is far more likely that one will succeed. Itll work out like that eventually anyways, since more males are born than females.
