Looking for care guides

GoldenRuby

hi there! i had a betta in the past in a 10 gallon tank (heated, filtered, etc. etc.), but since he passed i've just had the tank sitting in a closet. i'm interested in getting fish again, but ideally something social. i'm thinking endler's livebearers or neon tetras. i'm wondering if anyone has some reliable care guides on those and/or other small, social fish i could keep (i would be willing to get a 20-29gal if the fish i decide on needs that amount of space). thanks in advance! :)

And they breed pretty easy if you like it. If not, you can get all male. Plus they don’t eat their fry at all. Very peaceful fish. Unlike guppy or neon tetra, they don’t have too many inbreeding problems. They are very hardy.

regarding feeding, you can feed flakes, worms, live brine shrimp whatever comes to mind. They are not picky eater by any means.

They are ok in temp 20-27. They survive higher temp or lower temp. But the midpoint are sweet.

if you want to keep your 10 gal. I would get a single species. If you want to upgrade. You can complete your tank with bottom layer fish or a centerpiece fish.

They tend to stay in the mid to bottom. They are fun to watch. A lot of personality. If you don’t prefer the endler you can get a group of these. They school/shoal very closely with a good group. And they also breed easily and don’t bother their eggs/fry at all.

Hope it helps. Pics attached.
