?What kinds of fish can live in a 10 gal tank?

okay, in another thread,
i was told to move my three goldfish into a big tub.
now I have an extra ten gallon tank with a filter,
with no fish to put in it!
What should i put in it?
I am gonna research it some,
But feel free to give me suggestions!

In my ten gallon I have 5 male guppies and am adding 4 Red Cherry Shrimp! Guppies are wonderful and very rewarding. Get ONLY MALES, though.

Yes, not cycling is pushing it even with bettas but they are a hardy species. Neon tetras are definitely not hardy and NEED a cycles tank. Not sure about guppies, they are pretty just I don't ain't live bearers and have to deal with babies. Tetras are very nice to have, I would go with neon tetras because they stay small and are probably the easiest of tetras.

Mosquito Rasbora (Boraras brigittae) is a good fish for a 10 gal. If you add some live plants they will do rather well. They should be kept in groups of 6 or more because they are a schooling fish.

Actually, do NOT get only males. I just learned the hard way. :[ Get 2 or 3 females and 1 male.
