Okay, so here's the deal; my mom is upgrading our ten gallon goldfish tank and either my sister or I get it and if my sister gets it I get here 5 gallon tank. If not I get the 10 and 5. And then my other sister is getting rid of here 10 gallon and I get it. So I either get a 5 and a 10, two 10's, or two 10'a and a 5. I'm looking for something different then the usual tetras and that's a little exotic.

(P.S. I am currently setting up a 10 gallon N. Meleagris tank)

How about Bumblebee Gobies (Brachygobius Xanthozona) A few of those would go well in a 5-10gal species aquarium. They need hard, alkaline water with a little aquarium salt added.

how about a pair of peacock gudgeons, or 4-5 CPDs, or 3-4 D. Choprai?

I like the bumblebee gobys and peacock Gudgeon. Does anyone know if there's any wild betta that would be able to go in a ten as a pair? I've looked at the glowlight and CPD's but I'm looking a little more out there; something with interesting personality.

Perhaps a couple of Betta Imbellis would work well (if you can find them). Sorry I don't know the common name. They look spectacular & the males will engage in mock fights but little or no damage will be done. Does well in groupls that include males & females.

My sister tried dwarf puffers, but they died real easily and she went through 3 in 1 month. Does anyone know if betta Macrostoma or channoides would work?

A 5 gallon is good for a sparkling gourami or a pair of neolamprologus brevis (Tanganiyika shell-dweller). Sorry I don't really know anything about wild bettas...

I might try sparkling gourmis but not the brevis's. I'll have enough Tanganyikan tanks buy then. (10 for Meleagris, 40 I'm building this summer, 120 I'm building next summer)

So far I'm thinking 3 BumbleBee Gobys for 5 gallon, a pair of wild betta's for a 10 and I'm not sure about the other???
