Default Most Prolific breeder?

Which fish do you think is the more prolific breeder out of Guppies/livebearers & Danios.

Just curious, as a friend of mine just started keeping fish for the first time - decided keeping 6 Danios & now has approx. 150 fry

I haven't voted yet because I am still trying to decide.

Amazing isn't it - I should add that I'm not absolutely sure on the time-frame, I think it has been around 5-6 months or so.

I will still go with guppies I think.

Hi Bernie I have heard guppies are....lol go onto guppies.com and you will hear about it. I have 8 danios and not 1 fry baby. My oldest danios are male and female and are about 6 months old at least and do act like they court and still no babies. The other danios I have had 4 months for a total of 8 a mix of male and female. I was hoping the java moss would help me see some fry.
