Answer==In India fish mate in the rainy season


If you are talking about fish in an aquarium, whether tropical or salt water fish, not all kinds of fish that you buy will mate in a tank. Some do, guppies and mollies are good fish to mate. Please be advised that you must be able to separate the pregnant fish before she gives birth. I use a guppy tank or a breeder tank. After she gives birth watch because most fish will eat their young and the mother will have to be separated from the young. Tropical fish are either live bearers like a guppy or a black molly or lay eggs like tetras and barbs. It is more difficult to find salt water fish that mate in a home tank.
