Here is my 10 gallon tank. At the moment my old boy Aka is in it with a few tetras and a snail. They all get along fine. Except Aka is starting to show his age. Fins are starting to lose color, gray scales forming under mouth and lethargic. He still greets me and eats just doesn't swim as much, he is around 4 yrs. old.

4 years is quite impressive! And he still looks good despite his age. I love how his tail suddenly turns blue, it's really cool!

And I've really come to realize how cute they are.
Yeah you'll want to bump your water changes up I don't know exactly how much though. :/

I recommend finding a nice 5 or 10 gallon for the three guppies (5 for just the 3 10 if you wanna go ahead and add more) but if you're tight on cash I understand. I'd try to take the corries back for def and if it doesn't work out I'd go ahead and leave things until you can find a way to separate the guppies and get another cory. That's just me though. There might be a better solution to your situation that I'm not thinking of.

For future stocking advice I'd head over to the Compatibility sub-forum. They give really good advice there. =]

Awesome! :D I'll try buying one or two to try out with Firefly! =] I'll get one with really bug holes and widen any that are too small! =]
