RTBS are very aggressive and in a 10 gallons tank, your ram will meet its death in a short time. Rams do not tolerate aggressive tankmates. Make sure they are the most dominant in the tank, not the other fish.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Unless you remove your RTBS, you are still really pushing the limits.

Well thanks for the quick answere. I think i should see if a LFS would wanna buy in some time soon. I think next time ill just get a Bala or Rainbow if any shark at all. Do you know how much a Lfs would buy it for? Because i would like to get maby a few tetras or a cichlid or to depending on how big they get.

None of those will fit in your tank unless you have a 55 gallons with the exception of bala sharks which grow to 12 inches or more thus requiring you a 150 gallons. Balas love to be kept in a shoal hence 150 gallons is recommended to keep 4-6 of them.

Their policy may depend. Sometimes you get only half the price they sell the fish.
