I just got a 10 gallon tank as a gift recently... I can't decide what fish to put in it! I honestly love guppies, but my dad thinks they are dumb. lol I just love that they are colorful and easy to breed. I wanted to put lots of decorations for babies to hide in. <3 Then my dad directed me over to a tank that was stocked with yellow labs... they were adorable. The are really active and hide in all the openings and holes in the fake rock decorations. It sounds weird to some people, but they were just so cute! The only thing I hate... they are pure yellow. Bright, sure... but just yellow. Guppies are cute and colorful, but don't have the personality of the labs...
What do you think??
How many labs (or similar cichlids) would you suggest putting in a 10 gallon tank?
What other fish would you put with labs? Preferably something that's not too yellow. lol
Are labs easy to breed? Would the tank need to be much bigger for that? (The store I work at would take the extra fish/babies)
If I know my options with these guys, I might pass on the guppies and go all cichlid. That would please my dad. lol Thank you and any info is appreciated.
If you have any other fish suggestions, please tell. :) I also take a liking to danios.... what do you think of them?
So many questions! Thanks again!
