I'm not sure where to post this, but so my mom went out and got a 10gal halfmoon tetra aquarium with the 2-10i whisper filter and heater (preset at 78Degrees F). Its set up with hot pink gravel, opalish clear and black vase gems and glow in the dark plants in pink, orange, green, and blue. There is a centerpiece of a fake rock with brain coral and some other colorful plants on it. All in all Its a pretty sweet polychromatic set up. (tootin my own horn) Its located on the divider between the kitchen and dining room... I'll get a photo later... I'm a little lazy now.
Here is my question/ help me please request...
My mom wants colorful fish. She was looking at those Glo-Fish, but when I put it into the stocking calculator it says that they may over grow the tank. ( may grow to be 2 inches ) Does it matter? I mean, I know it matters but will a 10 gall halfmoon ( like a 10g hex) be okay for 5 of 'em?
Otherwise she is looking at Tetras or Barbs? I'm so confused!
Basically any suggestions for some colorful fish, that are beginner friendly?
