cool, that sounds like a good mix of fish. I do quite like guppys, so I may substitute something for them, but i quite like that mix.

Well there is quite a few suckers so to speak.. Chinese algea eaters will get to up to 12inches...
BN pleco would be to big for your tank so maybe just some nice snails..

Yeh, didnt think of snails as an option. Do they not leave slime in their path?

Fair enough, thats cool.

Today I added my 1st fish, 5 Cherry Barbs. And I have identified that I want a bristlenose pleco for the bottom of the tank.

Just a warning, if you wish to keep a BN pleco you will need to either get better filtration or vacuum your tank a lot. BNs produce about twice the waste of most fish their size and get to be 4-5 inches. I wouldn't say they can't be kept in a 10gal because I currently have one in my 10 gal, but my tank is way over filtered and I make sure to vacuum up the waste regularly.

Thanks for the advice Lorax, I picked up a vacum yesterday, so I'll bear that info in mind, and make sure I vacum regularly.
