10 gallon stocking suggestions?

by friend_of_fish

I'm trying to figure out what to stock my new 10 gallon with. I feel like the smaller the tank, the harder it is to decide what to put in it! There's just so many choices!

I'm thinking about some of my favorite fish... I like neon tetras, guppies, cories, paradise fish, zebra danios, rummynose tetras....umm, I could probably list lots more but I'll stop there lol. Tell me what you think!

From your list, I'd do a few guppies and 6 pygmy cories.

Neons are nippy, you wouldn't want them with guppies in case they nip their fins.

Rummynose are pretty finicky - if this is a newly cycled tank I wouldn't add them. Rummies probably also need more space than a 10gal but don't quote me on that.

Zebra danios definitely need more space. They may be small but they're very fast.

Paradise fish I think are territorial and often don't get along with other fish. A 10gal is great for one though, if you chose to just keep a paradise fish.
