    Hi! You'll have better luck if you ask your question under 'fish diseases'.

    Do you have pictures of the ulcer? That would help you get a useful answer as well.

    The biggest reason is because the school as a whole needs more room. One neon tetra doesn't need as much space as six, but that shouldn't matter because they should always be in a school. One fantail goldfish can fit in a 30, but it is naturally a schooling fish and should not be left alone. So in order to properly care for these species you need to provide a school and therefore a tank large enough to handle that school.
    I remember my first Innes book (1969), he had so many fish shoved into aquriums just by his theory of using more aeriation, he also did not recommend water changes, just siphon and strain than reuse, WOW!

    Add more neons at least four but I would go with six, the neons will fill more secure and the molly won't be able to single out an individule or replace the molly. Mollies at least in the past had a reputation as potential bullies.

    This site is helpful for stocking~you have to enter tank size and filters, they have menus for selecting brand/size of filters and room for two filter entries and the fish are specific species not simply family and they have helpful footnotes when you enter regarding recommended school size.
    29: Zebra Danios, Black Skirt Tetras, CAE
    20L: Guppies, Platies, Neons, Peppered Corys
    10: Harlequin Raspboras, Otos, Amano Shrimp

    Hello! I hope this is the right place to ask this question. I have been trying for several years to get a long term, happy ten gallon tank. I am aware that this is a somewhat small tank so fish stocking has to be thought out very carefully. The last tank I had was going quite well until one of my fish became aggressive and soon was the only fish left. I have been thinking of a few different fish to put in my new tank but I wanted some thoughts. I like dwarf gouramis, but if I have them I could probably only have those two fish, a male and female, and perhaps one small algea eater if I can find one that is small and can tolerate solidarity. My other thought was a small school, that is five maybe six, neon tetras, also with one small algae eater. The final hope would be to have the gouramis with the neons and the algae ester, but I suspect the tank could not handle this. What are your thoughts?
