Ideas for a 5-10 gallon species only tank
So I would like to do a species only tank in a 5 or 10 gallon tank.
I was thinking Silver Tipped tetras, but I was also wondering if any of you guys had some ideas?
I'm really looking for-
What are your pH, gH, and kH?
That will help determine what species can be kept in your water.
Our city water is incredibly hard... its like perfect for live bearers, but I'm kinda tired of live bearers.
I don't know much about our water, or what any of that stuff is and how to test it.
There are lots of Danio varieties that would do well in a 10g species tank - if you're looking for some SERIOUS color, you could always try GloFish - which are neon-colored Danio.
You might also want to look into White Cloud Mountain Minnows. . . I really love this fish, they're silvery AND colorful!
I'd say definitely go with a 10g, whatever you choose. . .
Unless you want to do a 5g tank with a couple of African Dwarf Frogs - they aren't colorful, silvery, OR fish, tho :) Or a betta, of course, who would be very happy in a 5g!
I'm also kinda leaning towards something exotic and interesting that will make people who look in the tank stop and go "Whoa, what is that!"
I kinda like the way the glo-fish look, how many would fit comfortable in a filtered, heated 10 gallon?
Not sure on the water specs for them but look into sparkling gourami
Hmmm. . . I'll keep thinking, maybe I can come up with another idea for you!
I'm not exactly sure how hard our tap water is because we have a water softener that uses salt.
Could I make a brackish water tank in a 10 gallon?
