A 10 gallon Harlequin Rasbora tank questions.

This is a hypothetical fish tank. If I got a 10 gal. fish tank, would it be okay to get 5 harlequin rasbora, 3 gold barbs, and 2 bambo shrimp? Thoughts, ideas? Thanks

Golden barbs get to big for a 10 gallon tank.

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

I have a 55 gallon, 40 gallon, 29 gallon, 20 gallon tank, 5 gallon , and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I agree with calmwaters, also harlequin rasbora need to be in a group of at least 6

10 Gallon Planted Freshwater Tank:

- 7 Harlequin Rasbora
- 1 Bristlenose Pleco

Agree with prior posts. No barb will be happy in a 10g. Rasbora are less active, and a group will work in a planted 10g. A substrate fish can be added.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
