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!!??

Can't help with your fish question but nice score on the tank!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

id have pea puffers in there,they'd look great.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

the gobies are brakish.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

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