    Hi, Im currently going through fishless cycling in my 30l (10 gal) nano tank and its coming to the point where I should start considering the stocking. Im looking for colourful small tropicals and/or maybe a centre piece fish? I want some fish to show some personality when Im sitting at my desk

    some ideas I have already are:

    1. Dario Dario (1 male and a couple females although I know theyre extremely hard to sex)

    2. Apistograma (or another dwarf cichlid) with some small schooling fish (raspoaras/tetras etc) and maybe a little clean up crew of either snails or otocinclus

    3. 1 single pea puffer

    Theyre just some ideas Ive had but I would love to hear your suggestions and thoughts on this. Im slightly more inclined to go with either idea 1/2

    Thank you^^

    I think apistos need a 20 gallon, so do other dwarf cichlids, but you could do just a school of chili rasboras or other similar sized fish. Glowlight tetras are also an option I think.

    I also believe you can have more than 1 pea puffer in a 10 gallon. Maybe a trio?
