    I have a ten gallon tank, it has a filter, a heater and a ton of fake plants for hiding, and a mystery snail(who can be moved to one of the other tanks), I was wondering what I could stock the tank with. I was hoping for something cool looking, but not a Betta. I’d be open to a school or even just a “center piece” fish. Any suggestions?

    I believe celestrial pearl danios can go in a 10g. I think rasboras as well but not 100%.

    I love the look of the celestial pearl danios, are they schooling fish?

    There’s a ton in the 10g stock thread, but my personal favourites are peacock gudgeons , cpd’s, some of the microrasboras, and sparkling goiramis.

    CPDs are schooling fish. Other than CPDs, you could also do a school of chili rasboras. Peacock gudgeons are also one of my favorites as well; I love their coloration.

    I think I’ve fallen in love with both the CPDs and the peacock gudgeons... I can’t decide which school I should stock in the ten gallon

    Peacock gudgeons aren’t schoolers, so you could do both. 6 cpds and 1-2 peacocks.

    You could also do 4-6 African shell dweller cichlids. They only get about 2 inches long (females about 1 inch) and are some of the most interesting fish to watch. Tons of personality.

    Gudgeons are cool too, though :).

    I'd do 8 CPDs and 2 peacock gudgeons (stays near the bottom).

    If you do CPDs i believe you can get a max of 12 in a 10g.
