No way.  IMHO, Guppies breed like rabbits, but the number of fry per batch and
the six-week gestation period makes production rates very slow.  Danios, and
certain cichlids, will produce more fry per week (make that WAY more) than
guppies will per month.  They are really easy to spawn, and really easy to
raise the fry up to the size you want.
