    Default Starting new 10 gallon freshwater tank!

    0 Not allowed!
    Hello all! I am starting a new tank. 10 gallons to be specific! Right now it is all i can afford because bigger is quite expensive. I would love 30 but i dont want to spend anything over 50$...anyways I would like to know (like in my saltwater new tank help) What i need and What i can put in there. I am for sure putting Alpha my Betta fish in there. He has been with 3 ghost shrimp in a 1 gallon with no filter no nothing. Just little rocks and a color wheel. He picked at them and atually took off the front legs of one (they are now all dead). So for this one I am going to have a cave for my little shrimp but what other fish can I add with him? What plants should I get, if i should get any? It is a brand new tank so should I wait to put the fish in it? Any help would be greaT so thank you!

    First you need to slow down a little, read this and we will go from there.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    How do you test ammonia? Also thank you so much for that post! That gives me MUCH insight on how to start my tank. Thank you so much!
