ok, following the beginners guide to the first aquarium, i have the begginer fish guide. Everything in the tank size below can fit the fish in the bigger tank. So what fits in a 1-5 gallon fits in the 10 gallon etc
1-5 Gallons: A shrimp tank is all these can be. Ghost shrimp and Cherry shrimp are both good. Nothing smaller than 1 gallon.
5-10 gallons: Bettas, zebra danios, leopard danios, white cloud minnows, guppies, ghost shrimp and cherry shrimp, dwarf puffers, neon tetras, cardinal tetras, black neon tetras, almost all the tetras except the bigger ones. Tiger barb species tank, oto catfish
10-20: The larger of the tetras, platies, swordtails, krib cichlid, dwarf and pygmy cories, dwarf gouramis, cherry barb
20-30 gallons: All the dwarf cichlids (bolivian ram, german blue ram, gold ram, apisto cichlid) corydoras catfish, mollies
30-40 gallons: Firemouth cichlid, convict cichlids, angelfish cichlids, goldfish, dojo loaches
40-70 gallons: African Cichlid tank
70-100 gallons: Oscar Cichlid, Jack dempsy
100-1000: Bala Sharks
1000+: Red-tail Catfish (experianced novice aquarists onl)
these are begginer to novice fish. Please also note that the african cichlid, and red tail catfish tanks are very different from tropical fish tanks.
There are a lot more fish out there but these are good for begginer to novice aquarists
