You have to let the tank cycle first! You need to do A TON more research before you think about getting fish yet! The only fish I would reccomend for a tank that small is a betta.

hello Keeton and welcome.
would you be able to list the treatments you have added to your tank ?
there are a couple of options you have for a 10glln,but it will
depend on if you have cycled first,if you have,how did you do it,
if you have not,how would you like to do it.
:)

thanks for the replys
i've added aqua plus tap water conditioner and nutrafin for ammonia and nitrite to the 10 litres of water (the recommend amount) and i've ran it with the filter for 48 hours.

ok,well i recognise the first one,but don't quite get the second.
(but then somtimes i don't get most things lol )
you need to cycle the tank,to get benifical bacteria into the filter,
would you like to do this with fish or with out ?
hmm i forgot to ask, are you new to fish keeping, ?

Oh, I thought you said 10 liter, not 10 gallon. If its a 10g there are a bunch of options!

hi
http://www.fishforum.com/freshwater-...ium-cycle-252/
thi s will help you.
once your cycle is finished,you could have perhaps a Betta,or cherry shrimp
with a few neon tetras they don't grow big.Endlers.
someone else i 'm hoping will pop in on your thread and offer some suggestions
on the variety of fish.
what substrate,heating,filter do you have ? :)

oh, you did. Ten liters is 2.64 gallons. you could put in 2 male guppies, OR a betta, or some ghost shrimp, or maybe a platy. Do you have a heater and filter? You will need both of these.
Here is a nice article on fishless cycling
