Hi all.

I recently got a 10 gallon tank. It already has gravel and plants in it. Trying to figure out a couple fish to put in it. I was thinking of possibly getting a couple Rose Barbs, but I am open to other suggestions. Keep in mind, though, I'm a fish beginner.

Thanks everyone.

Hey bubbly, welcome! It's time to do some research hey? Rosy barbs, as well as many other fish, are schooling fish. I would say a nice school of cardinal tetras or some rummy nose tetras would be nice. You could also do some guppies or platies, be advised you will have fish babies in your tank with those ones though. Are you going to put lots of fake or real plants in the tank? What about other decor? A ten gallon can quickly become a 9,8 or 7 gallon very quickly if you're not careful.

anyhow, have fun and ask us all the "dumb" questions you can think of. Before you buy your fish, that is.

I'd recommend get a school of 6 of one of the smaller tetra species and 6 pygmy corydoras. By the way welcome to AC!

Thanks everyone. Just curious what everyone has chosen/seen in a 10 gallon.

And don't worry, I won't be picking any fish without some good research first.
