what fish to keep


I got two tanks inside my house another going in my shed.
I would like to keep a couple of fish in it to keep it going.
What would be a good fish to keep and easy to breed?
The breeding part is not for me to make a living out of it , just would like to see it happen if it happens.
Thanks

It's really a matter of personal choice... there are so many fish available, and you don't even mention tank size or anything else, so I am just gonna say:

Livebearers! Guppies, Platies, Mollies, Swordtails... easy to keep, easy to breed.

Personally... i fyou want interesting fish to watch and dont want to many.. maybe a colony of shell dwelling cichlids.. or a harem of Kribensis.... Maybe even a pair of Convicts..

Cichlids are awesome parents and extremely interesting to watch.. and if you only want a few fish you can give away the babies as they are born

Since you say it's for a shed, I'd suggest White Cloud Mountain Minnows since they live in a wide range of temps & are easy to breed.
