Fish companions

I have a single female crowntail in a 10g tank and I want to add more fish in my tank than just one fish I can barley see half the time. What kind of other fish would be compatible companions for my female crowntail?

Personally I'd do 6 panda cories and 8 glowlight tetras. However, this would be a pretty busy tank so you'd have to be prepared to watch water levels and do weekly water changes. Glowlights would be added first, then the cories.

Is your tank cycled?

The previous poster is one the right track, but a bit high on the numbers, I'd say. Glowfish, Neon Tetras, Various shrimp, Mollys/Platties and some of the smaller cory varieties are your best bet. I'm not exactly sure what you're looking for, but I'd be happy to help you out some more if you were to post what you're looking for specifically. Colorful? Practical? Shrimp? Snails? The more details, the better!

Im not really looking for shrimp or snails, mostly other fish. Fish that aren't that high strung really, like...just chill fish that like to mozy around the tank. If that's possible I mean, or anything close to that, bright colors would be nice as well, it would bring a lot more life to the tank~

Neon Tetras are always a good choice. They're small, you can easily fit six in there (a proper school) and run next to no risk of fighting. Same goes for the glowfish or smaller (non-giant) zebra danios.

Maybe try 6 neons and 2 Albino Corries? That's a pretty good stocking plan. Practical and good-looking.

did you get a new 10g? The tank I gave you is 20g if that's what your trying to find fish for.

I'd get a neon blue dwarf gourami :D And you could get more females, you would just need to take out your girl first just encase she's too aggressive. I could see why you wouldn't want them though, they can be a little touchy when you put in a new girl, or take one out for a bit.

You could get two or three, and still have room for other tropical fish. You would need to get more hiding places though so the males can make their territory's without getting mad at one another.
