Livestock that can be kept as colonies?


Hi everyone,

I think I found a post regarding keeping stock as colonies months and months ago, and I can't seem to dig it up...

I'm interested in what stock folks keep as colonies? In which the parents breed and the offspring are left in the same tank? I've done this with shrimp, danios, white clouds, endlers/guppies, cories, even platties.

Thanks!

just about any fish can. cichlids can be tricky but shellies work well. some angels will parent raise. my columbian tetras id this (the babies just hid till they were big enough to not get eaten) my blue fins eat the babies so i dont do that

Snails, often inadvertently!
