It can be overwhelming when researching fish for your tank, especially with so many conflicting opinions online. When it comes to stocking a 10-gallon tank, there are a few options that offer unique and beautiful additions to any aquarium. Bettas are an obvious choice for small tanks - they don’t need a partner and come in a variety of colors and patterns - but other species like Scarlet Badis, Dwarf Gouramis, Dwarf Flag Acaras, Vampire Shrimp, and even Wild Betta Imbelis can make great additions as well.
When considering any type of fish for your aquarium it’s important to do your research. Many sites that sell fish will provide inadequate information in order to make sales quicker; instead look towards third party informers who specialize in providing accurate information about the animal you’re interested in. Additionally, size is an important factor as well since overcrowding leads to stress which will lead to health issues such as bacterial infections or fungal infections. If you think something is cool then go for it! Popularity shouldn’t be the determining factor when deciding what kind of fish you want; popular species usually become popular because they’re easy or interesting enough that people want them!
No matter what type of fish you decide on for your 10-gallon tank (or larger!), research and preparation is key before purchasing any kind of animal from online retailers or pet stores. If possible visit reputable local breeders or suppliers and ask questions about water parameters (pH levels), diet needs, overall health/condition of the specimen(s), etc. All these details help ensure that your new addition(s) will have the best chance at thriving once they enter their new home!
