    What do you plan on doing with the fry?

    I can tell you right now that goldfish are difficult to breed in an aquarium. They're a lot more likely to breed in a large pond. Breeding bettas is complicated and difficult plus it requires TONS of space since you'll eventually have to separate all the males into 1/2 gallon cups once they start to mature. You could easily end up with a hundred cups needing daily water changes. Guppies are almost too easy to breed and most LFS's won't take them, let alone pay you for them. And I think cories are moderately difficult to breed. Mine have never bred, but I know a couple who have successfully bred some.

    I have actually seen a lot of people successfully breed cories, I think it might depend on the species, but you can try.

    I would opt for a smaller species of fish. Purely because if you breed something like Oscars, you are going to end up with a lot of fish that all require alot of space. So when you sell them on or give them away, the chances of all of them finding responsible owners that will make sure they have a large enough tank is remote.
    I have seen far too many Oscars and other large fish being kept in tanks that are simply too small for them.....not nice :(
