    Just wanted to get a vote from all you guys on what you would stock a 10 gallon tank with if you could stock it with anything you wanted. That's my project right now is to find homes for my baby guppies and make it into a planted or species tank. Anyways tell me what you would put in it already if you could. ;D

    3 corys and 4 male endlers a snail that will not eat plants

    Well, I have Guppies and Platys in mine (the Otos are moving out)...but you could have tetras...or barbs...or danios...or a male Betta...or female Bettas...or other livebearers...or Dwarf Gouramis...and then you could add catfish...or loaches...or shrimp...or snails...
    heh heh ::) I really don't know what I would get, it would depend on what fish I already had in other tanks and what I felt like and maybe what my brother or mum likes...
    just get whatever you want! ;)

    I'd probably get a betta as a "showcase" fish, and then 4 or so cories.

    I'm thinking maybe some kulis and a betta if that would work.

    I'm thinking a 10 is too small for Kuhlis...

    ya because they like to be in groups and wont be happy if they aren't, plus they should have sand

    I would stock it with Cory's

    Ya I was thinking the same thing emma and 0morrokh that they would be to big.
    3 kuhlis, 4" each=roughly 12" and they like more than three so ya unfortunatly that would be a no and the angels will view them as food so no kuhlis for me for a looonnnggg time.
    Now cories, if I got the small type.
    5 cories, 2" each=roughly 10" plus a betta might work.

    I would go for a Betta, with a live plant or 2 of they were small enough, and then if you could get in 3 corys or instead of corys a bristle nose - dunno if that would get too big eventually or not. If he would you could have maybe a nice snail :)

    It's going to be a planted tank with CO2 and ferts hopefully so a betta would be in pratically heaven. Panda corys like to be in groups of eight I think. BN's get around four inches, have one in my 29.
