    Hello Fishlore community!

    I figured it was about time I got a Fishlore account. I've found so much great information on this site, so I have decided to join the community. I am relatively new to fish keeping, and am currently cycling a 10 gallon tank before I get any fish.

    Welcome to the community.

    Lets cut to the chase, what are your water parameters? :D

    Haha! Thanks for the welcome.

    Ammonia 0.5 ppm
    Nitrite 5.0 ppm
    Nitrate 5.0 ppm

    pH is at 8 but I'm not really stressing about that right now since I'm in the middle of a cycle.

    I have yet to decide! There are too many choices... even for a 10 gallon haha.

    That's great! I think I was obsessed before I even joined haha... Whenever I had questions regarding my new tank I always ended up on Fishlore.

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Perhaps you can start a thread on 10g stocking ideas, there’s already a thread with a ton of ideas(probably wouldn’t help narrowing it down lol) that I’ll link to, but getting some ideas others have tried may be of some help. It can be very hard deciding what to do with so many options though!:D

    Wow that link you provided is quite helpful! I will be sure to look into it more. I've been thinking about stocking it with 4-6 fish that have a max size of 1"-3"... one of those being a bottom feeder. You think that's a good aim? If I don't get a bottom feeder I might get a Nerite snail.

    I think that’d be fine, but the only real bottom feeder there is available in a 10g are Asian stone cats. I think you may need around 3 of those, but you could still have 3-6 other fish even with 3 of them. You could have a school of 6 nanos and 3 Asian stones if your interested in schoolers.

    Oh I see... thanks! I will look into those. Haven't decided if I wanted a small school or not.
