Hi, just wondering what people think about stocking.

OK, I have 2 cories in my 10 gallon tank as all the rest died :'(

I know it is my vote that counts,but please vote as im not sure.

if there is a fish that is not compatible with my setup, please tell me.

also, if possible tell me how many to put in.

also tell me others I may have missed, as I want to keep my options open.

remember, your opinion counts!

galaxy rasbora and celestial pearl danio are the same species, and they would work well

I voted corys, but from what I have read over the last month, the tank should at least be 6 weeks past cycling before adding them at all.

If the tank is immature, perhaps a few hardy tetras could be the way forward and then over time boost up the numbers of the tetra and cory upto 6+ of each?

I voted for the Celestial Pearls. I'd add another Cory to. 6 Corys would be the tank either fully stocked or overstocked. I don't know who voted for a male Betta but that isn't a very good choice IMO. Bettas are best by themselves with no tank mates.

even a female? anyways, I knew I would be pushing it with 4 cories.

Thanks guys! I love the Endlers and the pearl danios especially! the Endlers I have seen at my LFS before, but the pearl danios are indeed very hard to find!

i voted CPDs also, they are great, albeit tiny! I got mine from a LFS but they still had them listed as galaxy rasboras, and apparently don't get them very often.

Female Bettas can work in a community tank but it is still not the ideal environment for them IMO. A female would probably be ok with a few Corys though. Just not a male Betta.

Just another thought... the filter! If I did happen to find some celestials, how could I stop them from getting caught? I have heard about covering it with a sponge but with my top filter it would be hard! I might be able to rig up a sponge filter/corner filter (for lighter stockings) or would a power filter suffice?

Also, about the male betta, im having second thoughts about it. Besides, I already have a show pony ;D!

No question as to how I'm voting!

You could easily keep 8 to 12 Celestial Pearl Danio, aka - Galaxy Rasbora, in your tank.

I voted endlers. I agree that a male betta is a bad choice although to be honest I think you would be okay with corys and a male betta but there is always the chance your betta won't like them. A female betta would be fine with the corys.
