Need help selecting fish for a 10 gallon tropical setup
I'm thinking about having
1 AngelFish
4 Neon Tetra
4 glow fish
1 dwarf frog
1 snail
1 guppy

So i dont know if that will overcrowd or not
Would love some suggestions of other breeds that would be suitable :)

Hi Rummy Welcome to the forum:redyay:.
I know starting a tank is exciting but and you knew there is always a but:lol:, 10 gallons does not give you many options. For example angle fish need at least 20+ gal and they prefer the taller tanks as their fins grow very long. Other than the angel fish not being a good idea, I think you could go with the neon tetra or glow fish. When considering which fish to stock with you should generally stick to the 1 inch of fish per gallon of water. It helps keep in mind enough space for the fish to live healthy. I dont know much about frogs, hopefully someone will come along with some suggestions as well. Do you know about cycling the tank?

Good Luck:-)

Yes i know all about cycling the tank
-points over to dead goldfish-
I dont think the whole "cycle your tank with a fish" idea is so hot
I think he had a desease though*throws rocks at petco*

I'm going to do some ammonia testing before i put more fish in
Also could anyone suggest a good heater? THEO UL Heater 100W: Home & Garden
Thinking about that one
