Hey all.
I am working on a project, and putting together a little set up. I have 10 gallon tank, and filter and all that. I am just wondering what are some tight fish that can live in one of these things. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated

any that you like? what is the pH out of your tap? do you have a heater?

There are a lot of fish species that are suitable bor beginners. I am assuming that you got a heater and is going to keep tropical fish since you say "filter and all that".

Some such species are guppy, platy and sword tails.

swordtails max out a little big for a 10 gallon.

my water comes out at 7.0, I have a heater,, and a little filter. I want to get some nice trippy looking fish.

I have a ten gallon tank and we got some neon tetras. They look really nice and are good to put with many other fish.

I would go with some hardy fish like zebra danios, maybe a betta in there too. There are a lot of possibilities

I would go with some live bearers, maybe mollies or patties if you're looking for color.

There are also a lot of tetras you oculd have school of 6 or so in a 10.

My friend has a school of 6 neon tetras in his 10gal and they look great. He also has 2 candy platys, a red mickey mouse platy, and a black mollie. The tank has color and all the fish are very peaceful
