    I want a colorful fish with personality and doesn't hide all the time. I also want a schooling fish

    Male endlers are colorful with lots of personality, and an appropriate size for your tank. They don't "need" to be kept in groups, but you can certainly keep them that way!

    You could try Livebearers. You get to watch fry grow up and see generations of fish.
    5 gallon
    Heterandria formosa – Least Killifish
    Neoheterandria elegans – Tiger Teddy
    poecilopsis-gracilus

    10 gallon
    Girardinus metallicus – Metallic Girardinus
    limia-nigrofasciata
    poecilia-wingei

    I wouldn't mix tetras and Endlers because the former really do best in soft water and the latter in hard. That said, I'd go with all Endlers and enjoy the show ;)

    i'm gonna go with all enders and a sanded bottom with fake plants and probably 15-20 enders. Please tell me if this is too much

    I was going to say 16-18 male endlers - your stocking sounds good!

    nice. I'll start cycling the tank this week and put them in 5-10 days time

    Okay, thanks. I'm used to using inches when it comes to aquarium dimensions so I didn't think of feet at the time.

    why inches??
     
  18. RackValued MemberMember

    I'd do this:
    2 male guppy
    8 espei or hengli rasbora.

    Do you know how to cycle the tank? If you're doing a fishless cycle, it'll take longer than 5-10 days.

    Also, tetras and endlers are fine together. Most soft water fish are fine in hard water.

    That's what many people use for units when looking at dimensions. If you decide to use feet, I'd add an apostrophe at each end of the number. But sorry for the confusion.
