I've heard that guppies breed very often, and it's easy to get them to breed. Is this true? And, if they breed very often and easily, would it might be an idea to put some guppies in a 6gallon tank?

It's very rare that goldfish breed right?

Only thing that sucks is you have to keep the babies in a seperate tank, other than that, Ive had around 40 guppies in my 55 gal for the sole purpose of cycling the water and theres probably been well over 20 pregnancies in a month, keep ur temperature around 77, i think the heat makes them breed more often.

I'm sorry that the others didn't give you that much information.
I would like to say that yes, you are supposed to keep the babies away from the parents because the parents will eat the babies, seeing that they are so small. However, if you have the breeding guppies in a larger tank, say a 29 and up, and you have about 30 or less guppies in there, than the parents have less chance of coming in contact with the babies, thus making the babies live on, thus making breeding more productive and well....fun. If you have an questions, don't be afraid to e-mail me.
