    I currently have a 10gallon tank (I know its small). I have been keeping fish for about a year now and really want to get a bigger tank, about 20-40Gallons. So the pictures below are of my current tank. All these fish were given to me so I don't know the name. I did try to look them up but cannot find any of them. If anyone recognizes them please help me out because i really want to look them up and see what kind of conditions i need in my tank.
    So this is my current tank:

    Here you can see the red fish and another one hiding in the back behind the plant:

    If you can spot the eye of the fish under the white rock, him and his little buddy hiding under a different rock look like catfish to me. They only come out at night and I think this is because they are school fish and are scared. Anyways these two fellas ate all of my Neon Tetra :'(

    I would like some tips on what might be wrong in my tank or if these fish should not be kept together for whatever reason. I also have 2 more different fish in my tank but they manages to evade the pictures.

    The large orange and black guy is a hybrid sword tail (Xiphophorus helleri) crossed with platys, variatus and god knows what to look like that. That little guy peeking behind the plant is a Rasbora of some type. I suspect its R. boraptensis but I would have to see the whole fish to be sure. The catfish that gulped the neons are almost certainly some of the common Doradids that are in the hobby. I'd have to see them to tell you the species, but the hide during the day and prowl for food at night spells Doradids. They, like all fish, will eat fish vastly smaller than them, but they won't bother fish too large to eat.
    Oh, and the fish to the far right are Pristella (means little saw) species tetras.
