14-gallon nano tank stocking

Realfire734

I could use some help choosing fish species to put in a tank this small it hasn't been set up yet so most options are available though I might put some guppies from my 20 gallon in there once its setup

I think you can have 6 to 8 ember tetras or 6 of the lambchop rasboras in a 10 gallon, so that amount should work in your 14 gallon tank. The lambchops can get a little bigger than the ember tetras.

Hi realfire. What are the dimensions of the 14 gallon? I'm imagining a cube.

Nano fish are the way to go as suggested.

Chilli rasboras
Harlequin or lambchop rasboras
Celestial pearl danios
neon tetras, I think green are smallest.
Ottos. Only a few and Will need an established tank.
Pea puffers. popular oddball fish for a small tank.
Badis badis, pair.
Killifish. Short lived but I believe happy in small tanks.
Pygmy corys possibly depending on tank footprint.

Just gonna throw in shrimp tank as an option ? Again will need an established tank but some glorious colour to choose from. Just research first as with anything to see if it’s right for you or what you want ( my favourites are the yellow neos !)

That's a cool idea I'll consider it thanks for the help :) also I have a local store that specializes in shrimp so I can get some from there
