Bailey Posted April 5, 2022 Share Posted April 5, 2022 Hello! I am setting up a 10 gallon tank, and I am very new to the hobby. I have only kept cherry shrimp and bettas in the past (Currently have a 3 gallon shrimp tank and a 5 gallon with a betta and mystery snail). The tank is ready for fish but I am having trouble deciding what to stock it with (I do not have space for a bigger tank, just an FYI). It is fully planted and heated, cycled, has been set up for about 5 weeks now, currently just housing two mystery snails to take care of some of the algae growth on the plants and wood (one will be adopted by someone once I start to add fish). My water is exceptionally hard (I don't really understand what that means but I know this from using test strips). My pH is around 7-7.4, temp is around 80, there is driftwood and a few rocks in the tank and about 7-8 plant varieties as of now. I was planning on adding some cherry shrimp, but they're not a necessity. I was thinking of doing endlers or CPDs...but I guess I'm looking for suggestions and maybe advice? Are either of these suitable for those parameters? I have researched both but I am looking for more real life advice from people that have owned them. Which is more beginner friendly, if either? Thanks! 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
