Convicts, kribs, angelfish, rams, dwarf golden acaras, keyhole cichlids, multis (shelldweller).... and literally all the livebearers out there (cichlids are more interactive with their young than livebearers, but it depends on what you want)

Do your research on convicts though. Easy to breed, but they can become very problematic to keep if not prepared. Shameless cichlids they are.

Definitely. Convicts are the best of parents, but unfortunately that means being the worst of tankmates.

Wow, thanks for the wonderful responce! Really, thank you all!
I never knew that some cichlids were so prolific! Livebarers seem great too, no egg stage! And a few others that I didn't know about too!
Now I have a place to start doing some fish research, thanks again!

Livebearers and Convicts like everyone else said. Livebearers are easy if you keep some kind of bushy cover for the fry to get away (plants or plastic plants). Convicts are easy as well, but they require a larger tank. You can breed Livebearers in buckets if you want.

from experience, excluding guppies, it would have to be celestial pearl danios. some say its hard but I've bred them every where. clean water, dirty water, little water....pretty much just have a couple like 5-7 with some moss and they breed. they do eat their babies though.

Endlers are the easiest.....by far. I think my females drop babies every dang day! But if you are looking for parent/fry interaction, then don't go with endlers. Once the momma drops, she is done with them.

I think they would breed in a soiled toilet, quite frankly. You have to see the males.....they are absolute hornballs! They try to stick their thing in everything that moves! It's funny to watch. I think one of my guys tried that on my whisker shrimp once.....

I havent seen cories mentioned, they are pretty easy to breed, cld water changes and a lot of food and their good to go, they arent good parents though... Cherry Barbs are EASY to breed, 2 females, a male, good amount of food and some water changes and their good.

Thanks again everyone! Love all the ideas!

Now I just have to figure out who is compatable with snails, shrimp and live plants. I think that puts most cichlids out. I think that keeps most live bearers (and a few others) in.

i just got a pair of betta mahachais last week. they ate the first day and spawned the second. after traveling half way around the world(overseas), they weren't even in my tank for a week before there was free swimming fry. one week and my number of mahachais went from two to over fifty. dont get much easier than that.
