Oddly enough aside from a brown algae issue that recurs...

The tank parameters are perfect. And all I can thank are......... SPONGES YES! One as a baffle and one shoved near the filter. Still get good filtration but now so much more material for the bacteria to latch onto.

I don't think I've had a parameter spike... since the Nitrite spikes of January.

No... only thing I figure is that the Root Tablets made them all sick.

But... OOOHHHHH....

Ok so...

FINAL TIME!

10gal tank... normally... a steady 77-78degree. (Can lower that of course)

Platies... Tetras... Mollies... etc...

I know I've asked a billion times but someone just flat out tell me...

"HERE GO GET (Insert fish name here and number of them to get) and be done with it!"

Then... with that what I would need for that fish... like special food and such.

PHEW...

Drax persona... he's not really MEAN... just kinda pushy. He seems to like vibrant things to look at. So maybe a stunning (but not frilly cuz then he'd kill it... right?) fish. .........

Oh someone just make my mind up for me. *Sighs*

(Sadly I'm this bad with everything about making decisions... you should see me when trying to by paint at Blick Art Supplies which has like 30 varieties of the SAME thing.)

There could be copper in the root tablets... what does the label say?

****************************

Ok ... 5 neon tetras (adult size 1") = 5 gallons of water.
Drax (adult size 2.5") = 2.5 gallons of water.

Total: 7.5" of fish = 7.5 gallons of water. 2.5 bio-reserve for healthy tank.

That's it. No more fish. Just them. Be happy! :p
LOL :D

In my opinion, I wouldn't do tetras... while they'd be alright in a 10 gallon, tetras seem like they'd do better in 20 gallons. Molllies are messy little stinkers.

3-4 platies would be great for a 10 gallon tank plus Drax. You would probably want to get all guys or all girls to avoid having a bajillion fry. apart from that, they come in all different colors (mickey mouse coloration is my favorite), and are nice fish.

My green neons aren't nippy at all. But they are seriously outnumbered by betta girls! I'd behave too, if I were them ;)

IMO 3-4 Platys and you should be good... theyre not too small so they dont get bullied to bad... or you could do 3-4 danios and they wouldn't be too colorful so your baby still gets all the spotlight

Either tetra's or cories. Panda cories are really cute. So are tetra's. Plus there's a lot of freaky types of tetra's like the X-ray tetra's.

Don't do danios... danios for certain need at least 20 gallons! D: I know some tetras will do okay in a 10, but that is most definately not the case for danios of any sort (glo-fish are colorful danios, so none of them either).

+1 for the cories. Just be sure they have a lot of hiding spots and your tank is super well planted, because they are very timid fish
