    Not as a permanent home, afraid not. The 10g's are not tall enough. I put one of my black pair in a 15 long(same height as a 10)until I could move a couple of fish that were harrassing her and she scraped her fins on the bottom and wound up with fin rot.

    ok just wondering...thought maybe i could convince my mom to let me buy another tank ;D ;D ;D
    Any suggestions for fish that would fit in a ten gallon that are impressive, colorful, etc....My mom isnt too impressed with the whole fish thing...if I had a "cool" fish maybe I could convince her...muahahaha ;D

    Angels are beautiful, but a 10G would be too small for them. They have long fins and tall bodies, so they need enough space to feel comfortable. Ideal tanks for angels are tall ones (and bigger ones).
