10Gallon stocking ideas
Got any ideas for stocking a 10 gallon tank it has a heater and a filter currently no fish and is cycled:-)

would it be possible to put an electric yellow or electric blue cichlid in there??

Uhm, no :-)
These fish you're referring to are to be held in groups rather then alone and starting at a tank size of MIN 45g.

How about a Betta and ghost shrimp?
Bare in mind a 10g is very small tank, so no active fish like Danios work. And no bigger growing fish neither (they will need room lol)

Do you have hard or soft water (meaning what's the number to you pH & KH)?

iv had many bettas and am kinda tired of em umm idk what the PH and KH is ill have to get another test kit soon

Well its very hard to suggest any fish w/out knowing that and the part where the tank size limits you quit a bit :-)

hmmmmm ill go to my LPS and get a test kit soon but till then just by tank size what can you suggest?

for a ten IMO if you want a bit of activity and some nice color i would do about 3-5 MALE guppies.. no females or you will get over populated in about a week LOL..if you do any of the live bearers try to get males only and with a ten only a few platties are nice and they get some beautiful color to them... other ideas could be inverts only like a shrimp and or snail set up or mixed.

Pers I'd set the tank up with black sand and stock Norman's Lampeye group in itSlide 4 .O {font-size:149%;} , lil group of these cuties with steel blue eyes and a group of shrimp.
