Hey there, Depends on what what breed it is. Guppies, platies, mollies, swordtails breed all the time if the water hardness is right. Gourami will breed when a male is feeling like making a bubble nest which i think is normally spring and/or autum. Gold fish are normally in spring but need decent water conditions. And so forth. But If i didnt work at an aquarium for a few years I would have never known that most aqauriums only order in male gouramis and cichlids unless there has been a special order or the order is for mixed sexes, so u better make sure that u have different sexes first and sometimes it can be hard to tell. Do abit of research on the net or at the library and that should help u out. If u have any other questions u can message me at Hope that helped. catch!
