So I recently moved all my fish from my 10 gallon tank into a bigger tank, and I'm revamping the whole thing. What I was hoping for is a good species that lives by itself or in groups of 2. I want something nice to look at and somewhat easy to care for. I can adjust the parameters to whatever the fish would need. If anyone has ideas, I'd love to hear them!

Edit: Forgot to say this earlier, but I'd like to have a decent amount of plants, about mid-planted, not too much, not too little. Enough to look nice.

- Thanks, Puffer

Honey gouramis, or maybe angelfish. It depends on the size of your tank. Check out rams too.
I believe that the tank that the OP is talking about is a 10g :). Although, Honey gouramis would look nice in a 10g if they wont overstock it :).

OP, do you mean for the 10g now, or the revamped stock for your new tank (how large?)?

A single Betta I should say^^
I think a betta would be cool. I really like the look of elephant ears!

I've looked at honey gouramis before, and I really like them! I'll have to see if my LFS can get them.

Maybe 5-6 male endlers? They’re flashy, fun, and hardy :).
I had endlers already, but I moved them into a bigger tank. While I liked them, I'm hoping to try something new out.

Thanks for the recommendations!

I meant the 10 gallon I'm fixing up. My bigger tank is what I moved my other fish to, and I think it's full for now :p

Betta (try a wild species if you want something different, some are peaceful and could be kept in groups) or maybe certain species of African shell-dweller.

Ah, yes, the mythical Perfect Fish, Ichthyodreamus magnificus. Everything good about fish, and nothing bad. Grows to the perfect size for the tank without stunting, thrives on whatever cheap food you give it. Helps tank mates that are having problems, checks the ammonia levels for you.

I haven't found it yet. When I do, obviously I will be giving them away as they would not be a perfect fish if you actually had to pay for them... :clown::clown::D:D:rolleyes::rolleyes:
