Found a 10 Gal!!!

So I found a 10 Gal on the side of the road the other day. It was pretty nasty and I was sure the hood wasn't going to work but after 2 days of scrubbing it looks as new and everything works. So I set it up and have it cycling now.

Now to think of what to put in it... I would like 3 dwarf puffers definatly and either a dragon goby or somesort of invert that won't get ate. Any advice on this configuration? Also I keeping reading back and forth about gobys and puffers being fresh or brackish... so which one is it!!??

I may just try my hand at a brakish set up and get a figure 8 and a goby.

nice find, i was also thinking about getting dwarf puffers, will the figure 8 get aggressive with the goby?

I guess it all depends... I've seen a 10 gal with 1 F8 and 1 goby that looked liked they get along. I think I'm gunna skip the goby and keep this tank small scale with 2 F8's.

I've only ever had a fresh tank so I'm a little nervous about trying brakish. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I think 10g is too small for one F8, let alone two. I'd go for at least a 20g long for two F8's. You could have three or four dwarf puffers in there, though.
