I am starting up a 10 gallon communtiy tank and am looking fo some small apisto's. The one's that i've seen that I like are;
Apistogramma sp. "Steel Blue"
Apistogramma borelliI
Apistogramma geisleri
Apistogramma sp. "Putumayo"
Apistogramma paucisquamis
Apistogramma trifascia

I am just wondering if anyone could help narrow down them. They'd go with
Hara Jerdoni
Honey Blue-eye
Dwarf pencilfish
Paska's Blue-eye

Any Help??

I wouldn't be putting any Apistos in a 10gal, especially with other fish. They would need the whole tank to themselves & then some. Sorry.

+1. Apistos can grow surprisingly large and have the attitude to boot.

Are there any small cichlids I could put in there?

Not really. Not american cichlids at least. Maybe do it as a species tank for Shelldwellers (african rift lakes) but that about it.

You would need lots of shells so they can choose their own and claI'm territory.

I've looked intoit. Could I do a combination of them. I really like the Lamprologus meleagris, Lamprologus caudopunctatus, and Neolamprologus multifasciatus. Could I do a combination of them??

Not in a 10G tank I'm afraid.

I would say you could keep a trio of one species of shelldweller.

Nanochromis transvestitus could work in there, but they have a "hard work" reputation, due to their water requirements; aggression; love/hate relationship of breeding pairs.

Edit: "Steel blues" are considered to be quite aggressive, even if they were suitable for your tank...
