Found a 10 Gal!!!
So I found a 10 Gal on the side of the road the other day. It was pretty nasty and I was sure the hood wasn't going to work but after 2 days of scrubbing it looks as new and everything works. So I set it up and have it cycling now.

Now to think of what to put in it... I would like 3 dwarf puffers definatly and either a dragon goby or somesort of invert that won't get ate. Any advice on this configuration? Also I keeping reading back and forth about gobys and puffers being fresh or brackish... so which one is it!!??

Can't help with your fish question but nice score on the tank!

Dwarf puffers are freshwater, and im pretty sure the goby is brackish

id have pea puffers in there,they'd look great.

the gobies are brakish.

I may just try my hand at a brakish set up and get a figure 8 and a goby.

nice find, i was also thinking about getting dwarf puffers, will the figure 8 get aggressive with the goby?

I guess it all depends... I've seen a 10 gal with 1 F8 and 1 goby that looked liked they get along. I think I'm gunna skip the goby and keep this tank small scale with 2 F8's.

I've only ever had a fresh tank so I'm a little nervous about trying brakish. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I think 10g is too small for one F8, let alone two. I'd go for at least a 20g long for two F8's. You could have three or four dwarf puffers in there, though.
