Community Tank Ideas For 10 Gallon?

    I'm aware that my stocking options in a 10 gallon are limited, but I have an Aqueon 10 gallon set laying around so I'm looking for options that fit that.

    I think I'd like to have some cherry shrimp, and any colorful fish would be a huge bonus! But beggars can't be choosers

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    A few Guppies or a school of tetras are my favorites for small tanks. I almost always recommend corydoras for community tanks, but 10 gallons may be too small for a group of cories.

    Here's my 2 ten gallons:
    Tank 1:
    1x Male betta
    4x nerite snails
    1x mystery snail

    Tank 2:
    3x Endlers
    4x guppies
    1x mystery snail
    RCS/Amano shrimp

    Hope this helps :)

    Here is what I would do

    20 (obviously the population will grow) RCS
    6-8 Neon green Rasbora
    1 purple stripped mystery snail

    Boom you have yourself a rainbow!

    Give a small group of black tetras a try. I always liked their colouring.
    Otherwise perhaps a few nerites and a halfmoon betta. If you shop around, you can find some really nice ones with interesting personalities.

    Good luck!

    definitely should add some cherry shrimp. They would love it there!
