Hello everyone! I'm a fairly new aquarist, but have been reading ALOT of posts on here doing research about cycling n' stuff. Anyway, I have a brand new 10 gallon aquarium that I'll be setting up in a few weeks and I was wondering what kind of fish I can put in it. I'd like to have a variety fish and some shrimp if possible. Also, my boyfriend wants some kind of a fish that is really active, not one(s) that just float in place. He really wants a shark-like fish, but I think 10 gallons might be too small for that style of fish. I really want one of those orange bristle nosed plecos. Is it okay to keep one in a 10g tank with some other fish? And if so, do they get along with shrimp? Another fish I was looking at was loaches. Can they be kept in 10g? And are they a schooling fish? Any advice and/or recommendations are appreciated, thank you!!
