10 gallon (stocking plans)
so i have a 10 gallon.
as soon as i find a cheap stand and a good place for it (small town house) i am going to start cycling it.
so i thought i could start planning.
my filteration is going to be an ac 20 plus tetra whisper 1-3 gallon. (120 gph)
i am looking for fish that are active and not something very common (neon tetra, guppy.)

Micro rasbora's are cool and not very common.Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..
Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

micro fish are you only real option in a small set up.
betta + shrimp or
shrimp + neon's.
not much else can be in a proper school in that sized tank.

so far i really like the Micro rasbora's but my tap ph is like at 7.4.
are they cool with alkaline water

Micro rasbora's are not an optin because none of my lfs carries them.
but i kept looking for a fish,
what about dwarf puffers!
i love the way they look.
can you guys give me some info on them?
i couldn't find any

so i was thinking
planted tank with
5 dwarf puffer

That DEFINITELY will not work. Puffers are aggressive little things.
You could do EITHER a Betta OR a Dwarf Puffer -- maybe 2, you'll have to check with someone with more experience with puffers. Either would appreciate the tank being planted.120g New World Cichlids ♦ 65g South-East Asian Planted Community ♦ 30g in-the-works ♦ 15g Tanganyikan Shell-Dwellers

Get the right species of oto and plant it well and you could make this work i think. Tank would be full though

Endler are a great fish for a 10 gallon, in fact thats alot of room for them considering they rarely even get an inch. Good job on your fish choice if you did choose those.
@talldutchie: I hate to ask, but what is that microfish?(The picture on all of your posts) I have 2 of those in my 8g fluval and they are like 1 1/2 centimeters or less. Very pretty fish and do well especially because it is well planted. I forgot to catch the name of the fish, the store is 2 hours away from my house.

both species get an inch and endler have very low bio-mass.
i think i am good with that setup.
