ten gallons set up let's see how it ends :)

Hi everyone well another tank to the collection this is the sixth one and the las one I would set up in this apartment ( I want a fish room)
Little story about this tank I got it from a co-worker his son's goldfish passed away after 5 years I guess the kid was dedicated so didn't want it anymore so this guy offered it to me and I couldn't say no t

This is what I got

So I cleaned

And painted the background

So far I think I know what I want am but plans can always change the biggest dilema has been fish I have two different options but none is easy to find locally

If anyone is reading this what would you put in there :)

Thank you sandy I'm trying to get everything ready before adding fish I want this to be a good home

Willow you should try the background painted looks awesome and about fish I started a thread asking for some ideas I would like a mixture but let's be honest 10 gallons are not such a big room to have a lot of fish the two ideas I liked are a bunch pf pearl gourami or rainbow fish I think the blue I don't remember the name but they don't grow that big. Do you have an idea to share?

sorry carlos.do not think the pearls or rainbows will work in a 10.they just get too big. how about some celestial pearl danios and some kind of micro rasbora?these guys are really small and would look nice in a 10 gallon.

Since I haven't seen them locally I haven't actually research on how much they grow the gourami was recommend by jaysee he said that particular would do good but again I haven't seen them in the city I spent my whole day yesterday visiting different fish stores in the city and they don have them but well im still considering options something for sure red cherry shrimp so need something that won't eat them :)

Agreed, no pearls or rainbows in a 10. If I had suggested the gouramis for a 10 it was a huge oversight on my part. There are some species of blue eye rainbows that stay about an inch long that would work in a 10. If you can find them.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Nice paint job. I always wanted to do that, but just never have. I think out of fear of messing it up and having it look streaky.

I think almost any fish with eat shrimp, even if it's just some of the babies. Some are just more shrimp safe than others.

What kind of water do you have?

the only truly shrimp safe fish that comes to mind is the otocinclus.
