We have 2 platies that were a gift to my son on his 5th birthday. They have been GREAT as a fish for beginners. It turns out they are very hardy fish and have survived (and thrived) despite the fact that we are just learning how to keep an aquarium healthy. They even survived a bout with "protozoan velvet" parasite that must have come from the pet store. I love how energetic and colorful they are, and have become as attached to the little buggers as my son is.

i just wanted to say that i love my sword tails. i just got them about a week ago, i hope the female gets pregnant. they are excellent community fish. i have them in a 50 gallon tank with 7 mollies, a school of 5 bala sharks, 3 black skirt tetras, 1 male betta, and a shy little fiddler crab. they all get along just fine. i guess i will know when my female sword tail is pregnant cause she will get fat i assume. i have a breeder net ready, i just hope it comes soon.

I love the fat little guys in the morning when I stick my finger in the tank. My baby Balloon Mollies that survive are the funniest they never leave eachothers sides.

Guppies are an awesome, beautiful, hardy fish that are easy to breed. I breed guppies and they never fail to amaze me on how many new brilliant and vivid color patterns or mixes the new babies have. The guppy is a type of fish that is perfect for experts and newcomers into the aquarium hobby alike.

Mollies are great starter fish, easily mixed with tetras or danios.

Basically I have been breeding guppies for the past 8 years and they never sieze to amaze me because I always have something new in my aquarium.To some extent it can be said that it is not exactly easy to breed them because you can get as many frys but the adults have a tendancy of eating them and before you know it all of them will be gone.Therefore I would preferably seperate the expecting mother from the rest of the fish and in my case I always make sure there is more than enough food daily so as to reduce the chances of the mother eating any thing consumables unnecessarily.The guppy list is endless ,but for me I think they are the most interesting pet fish one can keep due to their variety and adaptation in various communities.I just love the guppy family,GO GUPPIES GO!I have about 100 adults and fry of up to 120 per month(various types of the guppy family.

I had started out with gold fish in a 10gal tank and got a couple of platies. I dumped the gold fish and now I have two 20gal tanks with about 40 or more platies of different varieties.

I THINK THAT GUPPIES ARE GREAT FISH TO KEEP. THEY ARE VERY EASY TO TAKE CARE OF AND ARE ESPECIALLY GOOD WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT KEPT FISH BEFORE.

Mollies are great pets, easy to keep, and are prolific breeders. I have had mollies for just a week and now have 53 more. If you want to breed fish, try mollies, they seem to breed the best out of all the livebearers.
