I want a fish....

One that can live in a small tank, 10 gallons at the most, cause I don't have alot of room right now. I might get a bigger tank someday. I wanted something with vibrant colors or just something that looks diffrent.

You'll need to cycle the tank before adding fish.

There are lots of choices. Neons, glowlights, Danio choprae, harlequin rasboras, cherry barbs, golden pencilfish and cories.:)

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.

They are sensitive like other tetras so you'll need to wait until your tank has suspassed about 4-6 months from the time it finished cycling. Danios are good fish to begin with. Be careful as they jump.:)

Stick with the males. They are quite too prolific IMO. Kuhlis aren't bad. 4 in a 10 gallons is excellent. Make sure substrate is not sharp as they tend to injure themselves when they bury themselves under them. You'll rarely see the kuhlis unless you can turn on the flashlight in the middle of the night. Also, check the filter to make sure the filter intakes have strainer to prevent them from going inside the filter and possibly killed by the impellor in it.
