I currently have a 10-gallon tank that use to house a betta until he passed. I'm looking for ideas of what fish I could put in my 10-gallon tank that could be easily moved out in case of needing the tank. The 10-gallon tank is my QT tank but I would like to house some fish in it to keep the good bacteria alive in the meantime. Any fish ideas are greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Pck

would two honey gourami's be okay if they both started out about 1/2inch in length?

Dwarf gouramis need 20 gallons.
I would recommend just using fish food to keep the bacteria going. If you are looking for some activity, you could use snails to keep the cycle going. That way they wouldn't have to be moved either, because they can't really transfer any diseases to fish, or get them from them.
