Maechael good luck on the berried ghost shrimp. I like my guppies but eventually the ones I have in my 10g I won't because they'll be to many.

Got light nice to see you have alittle of both worlds fresh and SW breeding.

WOOP's.... I forgot all about my African Cichlid days back in the late 80's
(back when nearly all African Cichlids sold in stores were wild-caught)
I forget which ones did end up breeding , but I remember I could never get my Frontosas to breed

(mouth-brooders are so easy to breed.... they do most of the work themselfs )

I've never cichlids, but if I did I think I would probably try GBRs.

Thumbs up Bangi Cardinals

IMHO and experience.... the easiest fish you could breed in an aquarium are:
Bangi Cardinals (mouth-brooders)

They are sooo tuff.... I used to raise them in my overflows until they were big enough to sell/trade.
They would get sucked into my 2 overflows as babies, then I would just leave them in there. They would do just fine & grow fast with zero attention from me.
The 1'st time...I grew out' a dozen in my overflows before I even knew they were in there

That's always nice to be surprise to new fish in the tank.

Separate the males and the females as soon as you can, no more guppy Fry haha.

I'm looking to get some RCS/CRS at some point soon, wish I had more money for the endeavor. Would love a dual tank setup for a start in a breeding program.
