    Can anyone suggest what else might look nice in my 10 gallon tank?

    I’m liking the understated look of it at the moment but had planned to have a bit more in it, just not sure which way to go, and don’t want it too crowded/messy at this stage.

    Still undecided on what I will stock it with too.

    That's a 10 gallon? Unless this pic is majorly zoomed in, that tank looks HUGE for a 10 gal ;)

    As far as stocking ideas, ultimately whatever fish you get should be fish you want to keep for years. So, do you like colorful? Or bland? You have a theme you're going for?

    Thats a pretty long 10gal...

    Perhaps a nice school of pymy cories and then a centerpiece like a dwarf gourami (single), honey gourami pair, betta, etc.

    Honestly I would keep it minimalist. Maybe get a large intricate piece of wood, and then just have rhizome plants only (with floating plants).... not stem or rooted plants (keep the tank nice an open.


    I'd honestly go with a group of shrimp (red cherries, fillies, blue dreams or yellow cherries OR try your luck with crystal reds/blacks or tigers) with a group of pygmy fish - habrosus cories, with a group of micro rasboras, ember tetras, sparkling gouramis ect.


    Keep it low number of different species to compliment.... a nice minimalist tank.
