    Hello Fishlore - Ok so later today I am thinking about getting a corydora or rasbora for my tetra tank. Someone also told me I could try an angelfish or a black molly or tiger barbs. And i was wondering what would be best for this tank.

    Tank Info-
    10 gallon tank
    78 F
    4 neon tetra, one rummynose tetra (and they all school together)
    Setup for three months
    Cleaned last week
    Filtered
    15 watt light

    Please reply thxs!

    Angels, mollys & barbs all get too big for your tank, corys are a shoaling fish & should be kept in groups of 6+ so again not suitable for your tank. The Rummynose really needs more of its own kind but needs more space & imo so do the neons.
    You could have some of the micro rasboras like chili rasboras, or sparkling gourami, or your 10 gallon would make a nice Betta home if you like Bettas. If you could upgrade to a bigger tank you'd have more stocking options

    In my opinion, I would rehome the rummynose tetra and get a couple more neons. Your options are very limited in a 10 gallon tank.

    I decided to get 2 more neons, 3 more rummynose, and maybe a few harelquin rasbora - maybe
