Which fish can I keep 1-2 of and It will work in a 10 gallon freshwater?
A betta or a dwarf gourami.
I've heard Neolamprologus brevis are good in species tanks. They are territorial so keeping a pair in a 10 gallon should be fine, but need plenty of shells as they are shell dwelling cichlids. You also need to make sure that you have a place for fry if they breed. Here's a link to a good site about them: http://www.fishchannel.com/freshwat...id/african-cichlid-neolamprologus-brevis.aspx
Theres a few on this site that should be fine. I think the badis would be ok but dont quote me on that.
I changed my mind. I have 3 male guppies in my 10. Can I add 6 females?
You should be able to add 6 females with a ratio of 2 females to each male

will it be overstocked?
do you want to know the biggest individual fish or the biggest amount of fish?
I want to know if I can add 6 female guppies to my tank with 3 males.
Will it work?
I would not put in any female guppies at all as you would be looking at hundreds of new fry every four weeks. If you have any boys in there who are unhappy about the situation, it would be easier to remove the most aggressive one.
Wont the guppies eat their own fry? The tank is very lightly planted.
They will eat some but given you'll have over a hundred fry every 4-5 weeks then you're going to have survivors & be overstocked,
I'd just stick to having males
They may or may not eat their fry. There are some strains who will not eat any at all, but even if yours are very cannibalistic, if any female fry survive, they, too, will produce more and more babies after two months. If you do get females, keep in mind that you may need to rehome extra fry, feed them to other fish, or put them down to avoid overcrowding and disease.
My males always agress towards each other so what do I do?
How long have you had the tank setup? If it was just setup they might establish a pecking order with an alpha male. I recommend not getting any females unless you have people willing to take the fry. Here are some things if you consider getting females for your tanks:
1. A grow out tank. (They will need a grow out tank for them to get their full potential and you may need two, one for each gender)
2. A new home for the fry. Having to many causes a lot of problems with your tank.
3. Do any of your guppies have disabilities? These will produce unwanted fry.
4. Are your guppies pretty? Don't want to be mean, but some bad colored guppies are at the store here
5. Do you have the time to do water changes and clean the muck off the bottom of the tanks?
6. Do you have enough money to get two extra tanks as grow outs, with filtration (and aeration if needed)?
Also keep the space in mind. If your able to do everything needed, then go for it! Maybe you can setup a guppy store or supply your local pet stores. I may not have everything you need to consider on this list. Please correct me if I'm wrong with anything! Good luck!
What exactly do you mean by aggressive behavior? Face offs can be ok, so long as they find a balance, and no one is particularly harassed.
I agree with renthus, betta or a dwarf gourami is a popular choice for a tank that size
You could easily do 2-3 peacock gudgeons! (And you could still have a few male guppies)
Honey Gourami. They are smaller and very peaceful. They get along with everyone.
