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 5-10 gallon 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)
