help me choose!

My ten gallon tank is almost at the end of the cycling process, and during that time I have been going back and forth about what kind of fish I want in it.

I have now decided that it will be either neon tetras OR endlers (all males). I want one type of fish and I don't want to breed any.

Which would you pick, and how many?

Here's the tank during the first week of setup (it has a few more plants now of the same kind).

5 neon's wold be cool but unless you put ammonia in there you are not done cycling you have to cycle with ammonia the bacteria do not establish without food.

I'd do a bunch of endlers, they are more unique than neons.

Well if they are not planning on breeding, there is not point in getting pure ones. xD You can buy pure ones, just so you know.

It is a lot more work like you need to check a registery plus purebreds are very expensive and it is a waste to buy a purebred of and endangered species if you do not breed them.

Endlers would be nice and colorful and look great in that tank - maybe 1/2 dozen or so.

Well, I don't see what's wrong with not purebred ones...

Yeah I bought a hybrid to strengthen my guppy colony genetic diversity and hoping certain features of there's like faster breeding rate go into future breeding rate go too the next generation.

One vote for neons and two votes for endlers! I am leaning towards endlers myself. I was planning on getting more than a half dozen of whichever I choose though. I thought I'd get five to start and then add another four once the tank adjusted to the bioload.
