Lightbulb hybrids

Not sure about the guppies and platies, but guppies and mollies will interbreed. Endlers Livebearers will hybridize with guppies as well.

Practically any type of livebearer can interbreed, guppies with Endlers, mollies with platies, platies with guppies, etc.
Not sure about other fish, other than as long as they are the same species even if it is a different breed its possible

Ender/guppy is actually a desirable hybrid, it is how the fancy colored endless were originally produced. I believe swords and plates can hybridized.

i know that B.splendens can by mixed with several other species, such as B.imbellis, B.mahachaiensis, and B.smaragdina. hybridisation with B.imbellis is actually the most likely hypothesis for how we got metallic bettas today.

A lot of the African cichlids will hybridize. So will goldfish and koi. But all of these fish need large tanks.
