ideas for a 10gal

so i have a 10 gallon just sitting round (rehomed a second 10) and have a 10 set up as a quarrentein tank...

id realy like to do something fairly interesting with it...

it was set up as a small comunity tank but we had a HUGE hair/stringy green algea problem with it so it got broken down and cleaned and is now sitting empty and lonely.

i already have plans ofr a 55 gal all male peacock tank as a room divider...and im planning a 7gal nano...so what to do with the 10 gallon.

ideas would be great!

i like color, i like personality.

im NOT a fan of most livebearers (though guppies are cool!)

id be willing to go species or community
id also be willing to do a vivarium or terrerium with it...

some thoughts ive had

dwarf puffers (would be new i like puffers but have never tried them!)
mixed community with a gourami and a nice sized group of tetra...or other...
anoles
treefrogs
firebelly newt

so folks, have fun and come up with some cool, fun and possibly unusual uses for a lonesome 10 gallon. i have a filter for up to 30 gallons set aside for use if more filtration is needed so....

If u go with a german blue ram please understand that they can be a difficult fish they need clean water and are picky about temperature and stuff like that but great choice....dwarf puffers are a great fish one of my personal favorits i would go with those then maybe a few corys like 3 puffers and a couple corys would be good

The puffers are a good idea, but I wouldn't try mixing them with cories. Dwarf puffers are notorious fin nippers and if you try this, you'd likely end up with some finless cories.

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.
