Anyone here breed fish other than Bettas?

Just wondering. I might get into breeding fish this summer and I was wondering if anyone here has experience with it. Also what type of fish do you breed/bred? Thanks

Haha That's true
I want to breed a fish thats like sorta like a challenge but not too hard to breed and that I could actually be able to sell, because I know livebearers are hard to sell.

Killi fish would be fun. I know the eggs go for a pretty penny on ebay.

Hmm I looked them up and they would be pretty expensive to breed because the pair would be worth quite some and since this is my first breeding I want to go for something a little cheaper :)

gouramis? Similar to bettas. I've always wanted to breed cories. They're all so cute <33 and they sound relatively easy for egg-layers.

Try aquabid? Some people will buy them in bulk, possibly to resell them at a pet store. If you breed some other fish, some people there will sell the other fish and add in the cories as an optional bonus, or say you can only buy a minimum of 5 at a time.

I think cories are a good beginner fish to try to breed. Idk, I've never done it, but I've always wanted to. Cories have got to be one of my favorite fish. They remind me of a pack of tireless, hyperactive dogs lol!
