What To Do. ._.

I have a 10 gallon community.

It contains 5 lamb-chop/espe's rasboras and 2 male guppies.

The lamb-chops have been in there for around 5 months. They are incredibly skittish and always hide. They do come out at night, though. I tried to find more but I couldn't find any in the pet shops.

I originally had 5 male guppies. One died in Mid-May for no apparent reason. Another had to be euthanized (hammer . . .) a few weeks ago because of a suspected case of fish tuberculosis, and last week another had to be given back to the pet store as it was insanely aggressive. I bought them in late December (the 29th I believe). The two remaining guppies are very light coloured, one is tiny and silver, and the other is huge, has a grey body, and a very bright tail, coloured like a monarch butterfly.

My question is, what should I do with this tank? I'm not sure what fish to add. My water is moderately hard, I think.

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. :)

Really, I'd say it's pretty full. Once the guppies are gone some pygmy cories or something similar would be nice.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Trust me, it was the most humane thing to do - no pain. It was hard emotionally . . .

I completely understand. I don't think I could've done it. I can hardly kill a beetle. O.o I'm sorry about your loss :(

Thank-you for helping, guys. I've just decided to make it my summer project to hunt out some lamb-chops. ;)
