Looking for suggestions for 10 & 20 gallon

I have an empty 10 and 20 gallon aquarium that im not sure what to do with, i will be moving again in 4 months so i will probably wait to set them up, but im looking for suggestions on what to do with them. I currently have a 55 gallon mbuna tank, and i would like to get a 75 gallon peacock or central american cichlid tank. But for now... ideas on the 10 and 20 :)

What about a couple/few dwarf puffer fish? They are freshwater fish. If you want to try brackish, how about one Figure 8 puffer? I'm interested now myself in puffers, and plan to get one soon.

The 20 gallon would work for one figure 8 puffer. There are some limits to this fish. Can't really have tank mates (safely) and you are limited in what live plants you can have. Let me know what you decide. In a 10 gallon, if you have hard water, you could look at a group of Endlers (very small but pretty fish). You can check out the fish profile section for all of these mentioned fish.

Small tanks are ideal for small fish, and there are many species of dwarf cyprinids, characins. Water parameters will be crucial as these will likely be wild caught. Many are in our profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar at the top of the page, with photos.

Yeah iv heard the smaller the tank the less room for error you have, Though i have never really had any issue keeping my fish happy and healthy so thats a plus haha. Ill be looking into these fish and what they need and such, I would love to have a room full of aquariums when i move haha
