Empty 10 gallon: Any ideas?

So, it's just as the title says. I have a spare 10 gallon tank, what should I do with it? (: I have soft, neutral water. I love Harlequin Rasboras and Corys, but I think I'll wait 'til I have an empty 20g for that tank.

You will always be my best friend, .

Do you have a quarantine tank?

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Then I think you should use it as a quarantine tank. Not very exiting, I know, but it's essential.

Personally, I have some cheap plastic tubs for quarantine. Like storage tubs, but clear.
1 gallon is fine quarantine for a betta, but if you want to get into other fish you'll need a larger one for sure.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

I like the quarantine tank idea. You can still decorate it so that it's not too boring and you'll have a nice tank to watch your new fish and/or fish that you're treating.
