Possible stock for a 6 or 12 gal Eclipse aquarium
Hi, my gf is thinking about getting a small tank (as mentioned in the title). Wondering if anyone can give possible stock lists for this size tank (6 or 12). I know it's limited but where she wants to put the tank is a small area.

a pair of sparkling or dwarf gouramis would make me happy, personally :D some cories too! ive always wanted sparkling gouramis.

Those are nice. This is a possibility. What are some other ideas?

The 6g is much more limited, I'd recommend the 12g if at all possible.

My suggestions for that would be a group of pygmy cories and then a school of small tetras like neons, or glowlights or something, alternativelt the pairof gouramis, or a school or cories with a betta.

The 6g I can't really recommend more than a betta, though some folk might recommend a small school of neons or glowlihgts for example.

Well, I'm flip-flopping. I am planning on setting up a 29g for schools of small fish, so I'm now thinking I might just do that and not do the smaller 6 or 12 at all. But we like the idea of the tetras & cories so far. Thanks for all the ideas!
