    I have 3 small male guppies in a ten gallon tank . i'm looking for small tank mates for them . any suggestions ?

    I personally think Ember tetras, Endlers, Cherry Shrimp, and Pygmy Corydoras would do well in there. I would only choose one of those however, not all of them.

    Shrimp and snails. You could also add a couple more guppies. Sorry, it's really easy to overstock a 10.

    I also agree with @LiterallyHydro

    You could keep your 3 males and get a couple Asian stone catfish. Or just add another guppy or two.

    Okay I really like the Ember tetras !

    I have been looking in to just more guppies ! They are so pretty

    Oh! I also forgot! Chili Rasboras would be another good option to look at.

    Haven't looked into those yet they sound cool

    Are these fancy male guppies with big tails? I'd hesitate to put anything in there that might nip or harass them. Endler boys would harass them. If your water is as hard as guppies prefer, I wouldn't put any soft water fish, such as tetras or rasboras. Really, at the most, I'd put another fancy male guppy in there, assuming that everyone is getting along ;)

    You could try cherry or gold barbs. They're not really nippy or anything and stay pretty small

    Thanks for the suggestions everybody !

    Not in a 10 gallon.
  12. 13fishy wishesValued MemberMember

    Okay thanks . in that case I will mark them off the list. I think my best choice is to get 1 or 2 more guppies . that way their tails won't get nipped.

    Definitely no to the barbs. I had gold barbs that were about 3 inches long. Cherry barbs get to be about 2 inches long.

    I'll keep that in mind . I think I'll get guppies .1 or 2

    I wouldn't do pygmy cories in a 10g, but I do think you could add asian stone catfish to this stock.
    Peacock gudgeons would also be an option.
