Guppy Compatibilities.
 
so i have been running my 10 gallon for awhile now.

http://fishforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=6231&highlight=

there is a picture of it as you can see.

i scored what might be a 30-40 gallon tank for $25 on craigslist, clean and no leaks. i havent measured it so i dont know exactly the capacity of the tank. i know it's a 30 for sure.

i want to move up to something more advanced. but i dont want to get rid of my guppies. the question is..

what more advanced fish should i buy that will be compatible with my guppies??

mr. fish at the lfs said i should get some dwarf gourami's.

Try some dwarf cichlids as long as you provide plants and slates as hiding places for them. As for tetras, be careful with what you get. Let us know what tetras you want before you proceed to buying them. I can only advise you to avoid serpaes, red-eye and black skirts as much as possible.

if i get the normal cichlids, does that mean i have to get rid of my guppies??

What 'normal' cichlids are you talking about?:) Dwarf cichlids consist of apistogrammas and blue rams. Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyikan cichlids are out of the question.:)
