Opinions needed

Hello forum, it's not often that I am the one asking questions here..... LOL. I could have resolved this on my own but I would love your personal opinions on my situation....

I recently got a new 10 gallon. It is cycled heated and moderately planted. I was just wondering what I should do with it

I would suggest doing a tank for Dwarf Puffers, a 10g you could fit around 4 ~ 5 of them, given that you planted it more.

That sounds like a great idea! I'll do some more research on them and see if I can find them locally. Dwarf puffers look like awesome little fish. But I though each one needed its own 5 gallons

sounds like an awesome idea. There isn't much demand for the type I'm planning on breeding. So I don't know if I ca find homes and make a profit off of them

All of those ideas sound great. I know I would either create a community tank of some form or divide it up. A community tank sounds better though, whether you include your betta in the community or just keep other fish.

I think I might do a community tank with a male Betta from bettas rule and place my other male from his 5 gallon into my other community

I really enjoy my 10 gallon community tank with my Male PK, he really enjoys the company and likes the space. I figure you might have the same outlook.
