Well i'm still kind of fixing it up and all...this isn't the way I want it for ever so I would like as many comments as I can get!
I have 5 guppies (3 dragontails, 2 redtails), 1 dalmation molly (born june25<--his parents passed away), 1 bristle nose pleco and one albino cory catfish =]
my pleco in a cave(cave has lettuce beside it)<--half of a bowl that I broke my accident

two red tail guppies (not a very good picture..but they won't stay still!!)

3 dragon tail guppies 2 redtail guppies<--can't really tell because they won't stop moving!!

and that isn't that great of a picture...but that's my 10 gallon tank!

any suggestions would be great! good or bad I don't care I just would like some!!!
thanks<33

Looks nice! Your guppies are beautiful! I've never seen yellow gravel before. Very unique and bright. I would suggest getting a photo background to tape to the back of the tank. Something natural and not too cluttered or colorful. It would block out the view of the rest of the room and help bring the focus to the fish and inside of the tank. You can get many different background papers for tanks at your fish store and it's cheap (should be less than $2 for a 10 gallon tank)

Exactly what Phlox said, all it needs is a nice background then I think its perfect

If you don't want one of those picture backgrounds you can put black construction paper or a dark garbage bag taped to the back. Solid dark colors give depth to the tank.
Nice tank by the way and love the Guppys.

Nice tank, but wouldn't 5 guppies, 1 cory, and 1 bristlenose pleco be overcrowded in a 10 gallon tank?

mine definetly aren't!!!
they're definetly the happiest fish i've ever had...when I come into the room they greet me..probably wanting more food
cuz they're little piggies.
but my guppies are definetly fine.

I always thought that I would overcrowd my 10 gallon tank(it has 3 guppies and 3 cories) if I added more fish. I guess I could add more guppies.

well it depends on your fish, some like more room others don't mind..
mine love the way they are right now!
so it mostly depends!

When the bristlenose gets grown he will be about 5-6 inches and the tank will be a bit over stocked but for now it's just at the edge.
Good excuse to look for a bigger tank Tamara OOOOPS!!! MTS(Multiple Tank Syndrome) made me say that.
Stradius011 - you could add a couple of guppies, remember to keep the ratio 1 male to two females so the spawning frenzy will be spread around
