Stocking a ten gallon tank.
Hey I am stocking a ten gallon tank and I needed suggestions. I understand there is not to much to do in a ten gallon tank so I really am struggling to find cool and colorful fish. So I needed some help it is planted by the way. Any sharks I could put in there?

No way in heck can sharks go in there. Depends on what you mean by "Cool". Personality, looks, size, what?

Knowing your water parameters would help also. Once we know these people can suggest fish easier along with any other fish in the tank?

Yes, that would help, too. Exactly how long has this tank been established for?

Sorry I didnt give you enough details this is my first time posting. Something that get along with platies, a clown pleco and a betta. If you want to see my tank set up its in my profile under tank 1. And nothing over 3 inches. There is no ammonia and no nitrates pressence. 80 degrees temperature.

Absolutely nothing, if that's a 10 gallon. It's extemely overstocked as it is. You need like 25 gallons for those alone. Even though you say you have no ammonia, which you probably don't, that pleco still produces allot of waste, as do the platies.

Ok I didnt know that thanks i am planning on upgrading to a 30 gallon in couple weeks.What would your suggestions be for that. Planning on that it will be well planted and have those same fish transferring into there.

Also just for future refference what would be your suggestion for a ten gallon tank tht would be well suitable for that size of a tank because we were planning on putting one in my kitchen
