I want a fish....
 
One that can live in a small tank, 10 gallons at the most, cause I don't have alot of room right now. I might get a bigger tank someday. I wanted something with vibrant colors or just something that looks diffrent.

You'll need to cycle the tank before adding fish.

There are lots of choices. Neons, glowlights, Danio choprae, harlequin rasboras, cherry barbs, golden pencilfish and cories.:)

i like those neons.....i just googled them
so are there any downfalls to them such as they are dirty or anything like that?

i don't wanna be someone who just goes and buys some random fish cuz i think it's pretty or some 15 year old girl that works at petco or whever tells me is a good fish. I want a fish I know something about.

They are sensitive like other tetras so you'll need to wait until your tank has suspassed about 4-6 months from the time it finished cycling. Danios are good fish to begin with. Be careful as they jump.:)

i actually seen the wrong fish on the search. I don't like tetras. I am looking at other sites and don't really know.

Stick with the males. They are quite too prolific IMO. Kuhlis aren't bad. 4 in a 10 gallons is excellent. Make sure substrate is not sharp as they tend to injure themselves when they bury themselves under them. You'll rarely see the kuhlis unless you can turn on the flashlight in the middle of the night. Also, check the filter to make sure the filter intakes have strainer to prevent them from going inside the filter and possibly killed by the impellor in it.
