a couple more questions

Hey everyone. I have a few more questions. I read on a few forums and websites that blue rams would be fine in a 10 gallon. Is that true? And is chiclid pronounced chick-lid, sick-lid, chi-chill-id, or what?

You mean you like chicklets? Lol jk it's pronounced SICK-lid. A pair would be fine in a ten gallon BUT, just getting a male and female will not guarantee you a pair. So personally I would advise against it. But you could get one ram and some tetras. Always aim to have a larger tank, there is less that can go wrong water quality wise.

If you are using a 10 gallon tank? Your very limited stock wise. Most tetras need a minimum of 20g, many say even the little neon tetras are ok in a 10, some say they need atleast a 20g; not because of size but because of how active they are. And I personally wouldn't put a ram in a 10g. But as I said there are varying opinions. It would be better if you are buying an aquarium to get as large of one as you can afford and have space for, because the larger volume you have there is more room for error incase it occurs. Just keep in mind if you go with rams most rams are sensitive to nitrates so be sure and have a good test kit on had to keep and eye on levels, and please, please, please be sure your tank is fully cycled.

I did a little more research and found the paradise fish. I don't think it is a chiclid, but I looks pretty cool. Would anyone reccomend that for a 10 gallon?
