Live-bearing aquarium fish, often simply called livebearers, are fish that retain the eggs inside the body and give birth to live, free-swimming young. These are one of the easiest types of tropical fish to breed and it is so satisfying and amazing to watch this happen. As part of these livebearer tropical fish profiles you can not only read about the best environment required in order to help these fish breed but also which fish they are compatible with and typical tank set up as well as optimum water parameters.

The main types of livebearer tropical fish are the Platy, Molly and Guppy. All of which are available in an array of different colours to suite different tastes although it is quite common for the females to exhibit less colour than the males, this is also explained in more detail in each individual fish profile.
