Dorm Room Tank
 
I will be a sophomore at the University of Denver next year, and im looking to put a fish tank in my fraternity house room. I want some fish that will be really interesting to look at. I either want 2 or 3 big colorful fish or a bunch of small colorful fish. At home, I have kept a 55 gallon tank with 15-20 big African Cichlids, and 55 gallon tank with a few baja sharks. I have had lots of tetras and other very small fish. I'm looking for suggestions on fun, interesting, lively fish to keep in a 10, 20 or 29 gallon tank. Any help would be appreciated. I would consider myself an intermediate fish keeper.

I don't think you should go smaller than a 20. Especially if you have house parties.

Lol, true true.

I absoultely love Cardinal Tetras. They are very pretty, and mine have a very fun personality. You can make an amazing planted, south-american biotope around them. Say if you get a 29G, you could get like...15 tetras with 6 corydoras catfish (cories), and maybe 6-8 Hatchets. I would love that setup. The plants and other fish company would make every fish in the tank feel very secure and brave.

Will the tank be in your private bedroom or in the common area?
