I would say guppies for the ease of it.

What I would suggest is this for a 40g... Get about 30-40 females and then about 10 males or so. And make sure they are well fed. Then, make sure the tank is VERY heavily planted, with lots of places for the babies to hide. The busier and denser the plants, the better.

Then watch the magic happen.

That tank would be stocked to the highest level, It would not work out at all.
Guppies while being precieved as a fish that is prolific are not once they reach the point of overpopulation.

I'm guessing this is again a post of someone thinking they can Breed there own feeders. Keep wishing as you will fail to do so sucessfully. Its not worth the time and effort to the average hobbyist.

I concur. You will spend far more money and energy maintaining them than you will ever get back in free feeders.

I think that bettas are the easiest to breed. I've actually done it myself, just couldn't raise the fry. All you have to do is get a male, and a female and throw them in a tank. Make sure to give the female some hidings spaces so she doesn't get killed by the male.

zebra danios are the easiest fish to breed - put 10 in a tropical tank and leave them for 2 weeks remove them and wait for the eggs to hatch
