    What are your opinions for fish for a 10 gallon planted aquarium. Structure: Driftwood in the middle with a rock pile. Plants: whole bottom covered in dwarf hair grass, with red ludwigia and broad leaf ludwigia in corners. Thanks

    Less is more. Go with smaller fish. Embers might look good, or possibly the galaxy danios/rasboras. Say maybe 6 or so. Shrimp are also a good choice as they have low bio requirements. Is your tank really that blue in appearance or did the camera do something wierd?

    You could use a nice school of Rasbora maculata (mini-rasbora)

    I put 4 sparkling gouramis in my 10 gallon a week ago. Other than them devouring my shrimp's babies, I'm glad with the choice.
