rts only get to be about 6", so it will be pushing it, but still small enough for a 10g

My thinking is that a 10gl is much too small for a RTS, and this tank will be overstocked with the list above. Any possibility of reconsidering the RTS in favor of something else more appropriate for this tank size???

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

general rule of thumb for these and most fish is you want a tank deeper then the fish is long, (so the fish has room to turn around), as they max out at 6" and a 10g is just over 10, it will be fine. however, more room will always be appreciated.

Congrats on the cycle finishing! The best thing about owning a tank is stocking it, but I am thinking an adult RTS in a 10g =

i understand that, but the way my rainbow shark darts around the tank, im thinking that the shark will get really hostile in such a small place.

I had a 30G tank and thought it was too small for my RTBS.
Heck, IMO a 10G is too small for a Zebra Danio. They swim a ton.


And please tell me your not adding all those at the same time...

nope, dont worry This is only temporary, they will all be upgraded to a 29 gallon exept the guppies and the platy. :) cody, thank u for ur advice on all of the threads, but do u think u could ever be a little less harsh (u weren't really on this one, just to other people.. ) I am not trying to be rude at all, and we all apriciate ur input, bbut just maybe think b4 u write.. I am really sorry if this comes out mean its not meant to at all!
