New 55 Gallon Tank: Combine All Fish Into One 55 Gallon Or Keep 2 10 Gallon?
 
I managed to score a $25 55 gallon tank off of craiglist! I plan to put my pleco in there, and perhaps my dalmatian Molly.

My question: I also have a betta fish, African dwarf frog, two neon tetra, and a pladdy.

Should I combine all of these fish into the massive tank or keep them in the 2 10 gallon tanks?

Also, please note, I don't want anymore fish, so buying more neon tetra to place in the 55 gallon is not an option! (I know some will suggest, keep betta and frog in one, the pladdy in another, put the molly, pleco, and (more) neons in the 55 gallon.)

Well just two neon tetra will wreak havoc on the betta if you place them together. The betta could stay in the 10 gal by himself. And the put the two neons and the dwarf frog in the other 10 gal. Everything else goes into the 55 gallon. But you really should get more neons if you care at all about your fish. You've probably heard this before, but you let them live in groups not for you but for them. They evolved to be in groups, and when they aren't in large groups it stresses them out.

I concur with Izzy.
