Best fish for a 10 gallon aqaurium?

Postby fishlover2014 » Mon Apr 28, 2014 3:46 pm

Hello there. I am new to this chat, and yes, I am American. I own 1 guinea pig and 1 hamster. I recently upgraded to a 10 gallon from a 5 gallon in an effort to keep my fish from dying via the filter. I have since fixed the filter with putting a piece of wire mesh over the suction part and rubber banded it in place. So far I haven't had any problems with it. So anyway, I currently have 1 dalmatian molly, 2 bleeding heart tetra's, 1 rubber pleco, and 2 red wags. I will get 1 more dalmatian molly and 2 more bleeding heart tetras pretty soon. Eventually I will be putting in four mickey mouse platies as soon as they are big enough. (they are fry that I wasn't expecting to have). So what are the best fish for a 10 gallon? I am looking for a mixture of big fish (not huge fish but something about the size of a dwarf gourami) small fish, and schooling fish as well. Thank you! P.S. I would post a photo of the tank but I don't know how.

Hi and welcome to the forum. With the fish you already have and the others your adding your adding your tank is actually stocked to its limits so I wouldn't advise adding any others.
To add a picture you either use photobucket and copy the IMG code or you add it as an attachment in the full editor section.
