Question 10 gallon stocking-hard water-high ph-

Hey everybody,


this thread i submitted explains it ALL:


Might consider converting 10 gal. betta tank into community?


No bettas this time! My ideal fish would be a schooling fish( just have a school and thats it) that dosent bread readily but has an easy upkeep and are attractive and lively. I was thinking about the following fish:


-zebra danios?( should i try them again?)
-barbs(do they get too big?)
-rasboras
-cherry barb
-hachetfish


I really don't like livebearers, because they breed to rapidly for me, and i don't have anywhere to put them. I DO have aquarium salt if i need it also.


Thanks!

I'm confused? Your other thread is about getting tankmates for your betta, and this one is about no bettas?

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 do not recommend hatchet fish. While they are cute and interesting, they are great jumpers, must be kept in groups of 4 or more, and require lots of space.

Thank! I really LOVE plecos and i know my tank is definitely small for a common one, but could i keep a PITBULL or BRISTLENOSE pleco with my Betta?
I clean my tank every week, and my PH is about 7.8-8.0. My water is hard-very hard. I am obsessed with plecos, and ottos have died in my old tank because they were too sensitive.

Thanks
