I have looked at most fish on the internet many of you know that i have been asking lots of questions lately. I wanted a Trophius but i can't afford a big tank like that so i need a fish with a personality and Color that will fit in a small 10 Gal tank doesn't need in schools and easy maintenance

Betta are pretty but i have had quite a few and i don't think they have personality of tropheus and there long fins would get damaged if i put more than one together

dwarf gourami is good for a 10g

A ten gallon is too small for even a dwarf cichlid!
The most aggresive fish easily available would probably be a beta or gourami.
I have a beta named Oscar in my ten!:hmm3grin2orange:

Bettas and gouramis have excellent personalities.

Thanks for replying and i love all the fish that you have given i have been looking into them but they just don't seem like a Damasoni Cichlid which i am now obsessed with and am wondering if you can keep just one in a ten gallon not saying i don't love the fish i have but if i upgrade or something are you able to keep one

I read that and i know that they should be in big groups to avoid aggression but i am asking that if i went and bought a ten gal cycled it and put just one would it be fine

Just letting you know that i am willing to be patient a am currently trying to get my mom to by a 55 gal with filter and everything for 125 so but some websites say that it is hardy you just have to watch for bloat and always have something to cure it

they recommend 30 and said that a 55 gal is the minumum for a colony so instead of 30 i thought 20 would be healthier and why is there barely any info on these fish

What about scarlet gem badis? You could get a few for your tank.

In a 55gal with lots of rock work/caves/hiding spots, you sure could.

If you are a bit newer to fish keeping you may want to try an "easier" species first, and work your way towards these.

My females are like that too. It makes getting any tank maintenance done a trial. I have four fems and a male in a 10G with a few other fishes. Betta have a personality that's far larger than their small size suggests.
