I have had mollies in a 10, by themselves. They have a huge bioload, the regulars get between 4-6 inches big, and they are brackish water fish. I do not suggest them, as they are also prone to mouth fungus, and other diseases more than any other fish I've dealt with. Although they are nice, they are also aggressive, and should be 1 maleto 3 females. Balloon mollies, are smaller generally getting maybe 2.5 if that, because of the deformity that is now a breed... They are not as aggressive, should still be 1 male to 3 females, and they are harmless for biting. Their mouths were made more for algae eating than fish attacking I've had them too. I prefered them in the 20, because they grew and flourished better.

That's my opinion on experience =D

although platys are a good choice, I am bad with stocking 10s which is why they contain only ever guppies (gender divided) or betta fishies :3

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I've had tiger barbs before and they are really cool schooling fish, but definitely not for a community tank with semi and non aggressive fish.

They are like little piranhas.

The results are in!

I definitely agree on the plants! I had a huge plant that was so nice and they REALLY tore it up that was my favorite aquatic plant. I don't know what it was but the leaves were really wide but flat.

They demolished that plant.

I don't think so. It was like a leafy plant that almost looked like an underwater version of elephant ear plants. Maybe a banana plant.

Sorry we were having our conversation on your thread. Some bettas are just not very photogenic and stubborn at times.
