If in a tank there are fish of the same species but different types i.e. scarlet and opaline gourami or different colours of mollies, would they breed within there own species but with other colours or not, I am curious.

They are just different colours of the same species so will breed. That is like asking if a brunette will breed with a blonde or, in the case of the gouramis, will a bulldog breed with a chihuahua :wink:
