I want to add something interesting to my 10 Gallon tank that currently houses 2 dwarf sunset platy and 2 ghost shrimps. What do ...
There aren't a lot of barb options for a 10g tank. Cherry barbs are small and peaceful and would work, but you've already got the red platies so I'd assume you'd want to avoid more red fish. The black neons, regular neons and glowlights are good options. Danios are pretty active for a 10g tank, and white clouds prefer cooler water.
yeah and i have a tropical tank so white clouds are out. I decided to go with neon tetras. I bought 3 already and is about to get 2 more. so far theyve gotten along fine with the platys. When the lights are out, they follow the platys as if there in a join school 0_0 . the platys dont seem to mind lol
