10-gallon tank

Postby theparrot » Mon Oct 15, 2007 4:21 pm

I have been in the fish hobby for about 5 years, and my girlfriend and I moved in together a few months ago. I am trying to ease her into the hobby so we can share the fish interest together, and am gonna be setting up a 10-gallon tank for her to take care of, something so she gets used to feeding and water changes and testing the chemical levels and stuff like that. I need some recommendations for what to stock the tank with. I don't want to do tetras or something boring like that. I have african cichlids in my tank, but I would like to have 3-4 fish in the 10 gallon for her.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

maybe dwarf cichlids like Rams
or big gouramis

how about a freshwater Lobster by himself?

Thanks for the recommendation, it's kind of funny, she and I spent some time on the web looking at fish last night and she really liked the colors on the blue ram. How many do you think I could put in a small tank like that? I haven't run a tank that small for a long time. I'd like to do 3 if you don't think it would be too much of a bio load on the tank. Also, do you have any blue rams in stock?

thanks!
