Hey everyone!

I will be setting up a 10 gallon tank and am trying to figure out how I want to stock it. I love the look of multiple boys side-by-side, but also community tanks. What do you all think of these ideas?

1) divided 3 ways for 3 boys
2) divided 4 ways for 4 boys
3) one boy and a shoal of cories
4) divided for 2 boys with a small shoal of cories on either side

Thank you for your thoughts.

1) Sounds good to me.
2) A bit too crowded, divided three or two ways is the best option if you want to divide.
3) This sounds like a good plan, but it depends on what kind of Cory you'll be getting. Pygmy Cories would work, about eight of them with one boy. Also with that Cories will need a sand substrate, no gravel.
4) This wouldn't work, either just two boys. But if you really want Cories option 3 would work for you.
