Had a small 10 Gal tank when I was 9. Now just got back into it as a Hobby 8 months ago. This tank is 3 months worth of thinking and planing.
When you see signs of stress in your fish, you can then take steps to identify the source of that stress and then to resolve it before it becomes a major issue.
If you're looking for a unique way to stock your new tank, give freshwater shrimp a try.
If your fish is suffering, you may want to consider euthanasia as an option to humanely end his pain.
