A large shrimp colony would be cool. Thats what I would do if I was setting up one of my empty 10Gs

This isn't a fish, but a syrian hamster or a pair of dwarf hamsters could live in there.

Tetras like neons or cardinals would work and look cool. Cories need to be in a group of 3+.

This is off-topic, but I noticed your signature and it says you have a 2 gallon with a comet goldie, they get huge, and prefer a 75 gallon.

Maisy I was thinking the same thing...

Cherry barbs? They are super hardy and you can't really go wrong with them. Or you could do endlers, a more expensive fish though as it is much newer, hopefully their genetics don't get trashed like guppies.

ZTK has a pond for the goldie, just for ease of mind. It was a temporary thing so no worries. :)
I like pygmy cories if you can find those.

Alright thanks for clearing that up Olympia. I figured that he had something else because almost all real fish keepers know it, if you don't... I wouldn't consider you to even turn my lights on lol.

+1 A pair of Winter Whites would be nice in there. ;)

On here people think a 10 gallon is huge, but they still limit you a whole lot when it comes to stocking. Really just one big school of fish is best. So if you do neons do like 9, cherry barbs like 7 and so fourth.

You won't be able to do two schools besides bare minimum, and fish don't do good if you do something minimal. So it is better for you to stick with one species.

+10 Just better to stick with one species of fish well maintained rather than two schools barely maintained.

It is kinda hard for me to wrap my mind around someone thinking a 10 gal is huge. They are the smallest tanks I own. Now a 200 gal, that's a pretty big tank.
