    Just wondering what people think would be good for a 10 gallon, roughly 40cmX30cmX30cm (I believe, will correct if wrong), don't mind single species as this tank previously held a single female betta. My pH stays around 7.0, GH is around 10dGH, and KH is around 9dKH. This is the current set...

    Hey! I currently have a 10 gallon tank that is my first tank. It is fully cycled and currently has a small goldfish in it. I know that goldfish will grow too large and am planning on finding someone nearby with a pond and giving it away in the future once it grows a little bigger - right now it...

    10g tank for dwarf gourami

    This was supposed to be a quarantine/planting tank, but plans went sideways when I realized that this dwarf gourami, Mr. Bluerami; was bullying my cories and pretty much all others on my 29g tank. My son grew attached to him, so returning him (it was a gift) or otherwise getting rid of him...

    Hello everyone! As the title suggests I would like some help/suggestions with setting up my newish tank. It is a 10 gallon half moon tank, rather than a typical rectangle tank. I will post a link to the exact tank and tank equipment at the bottom of the post, as well as a picture of the newly...
  9. How many guppies can I keep in a 10 gallon?

    How many guppies can I keep in a 10 gallon? No other fish, just guppies(All males or all females so they don't breed), as well as a couple snails. I don't want to do water changes more than weekly since I usually just do tank maintenance over the weekend.

    Is this a good stocking list for my planted 10 gallon?

    I asked a question a couple nights ago on the planted chit chat part of the site about my plants and everyone was very helpful so I wanted to check with everyone about my stocking list for it. I already have three mystery snails in there, and plan to get three scarlet badis, and eleven ember...

    Stocking question

    Hey I’ve got a heavily planted 10 gallon with a male betta and 6 harlequin rasboras as well as 3 nerite snails. So far they all get along and they all interact peacefully. However I felt like maybe the rasboras’ group of 6 is too small, and maybe i should add 3 more for a group of 9. Cyclewise...

    How to help betta with possible ammonia burns?

    Okay, I posted about a betta fish I took from a pet store yesterday, since he had some pale coloring on/by his fins and lips that worried me, but I only got one reply that said I shouldn't worry. Now though, I definitely have something to worry about, mainly because my tank had an ammonia spike...

    Fishless cycling using bloodworms? And needing some confirmation

    Hello, everyone. :) This will be my first time keeping fish. I’m planning on keeping African dwarf frogs in this tank and later adding a betta. Maybe a snail. Any of them I am prepared to separate in case they do not get along. I’m trying to figure out a few things about the cycling process...

    Help! Unidentified disease on guppy

    Hello! I got a few guppies from my local fish store a few days ago and had to add them to my main fish tank without quarantining them because I can't afford a quarantine tank. Sure enough...just a few days after one of the guppies quickly developed this odd disease and symptoms. The back half of...

    10 gallon stocking idea

    Hi, I decided I was gonna sell or give my paradise fish because I know she deserves more than a 10 gallon tank. I feel bad about keeping her for so long because it's pretty clear she's not happy in that tank and I think it stunted her growth. I don't know what fish I could have in a 10 gallon...

    Thinking of going from artificial decorations to live plants. How can I make this less stressful for fish?

    Hi again. I've had a 10 gallon tank for over a year but I'm starting to think of switching from artificial to live plants. How can I make it less stressful, since it could be a drastic change in aquarium? I can also provide tank parameters if needed, and any advice is appreciated. :) EDIT...

    Betta tank ideas

    I just got done watching this video and it's definitely shown me which direction I need to take my tank in. I think it would be super cool to replace my colorful gravel with substrate like sand, neutral or maybe darker colored because the vid said that lighter colors promote algae growth. My...
