Heavy planted. Lots of small fish. I prefer quantity over size. The action is more soothing. All the micro fish zooming about in and out of the cover. i's kinda a weird guy in that aspect. I love the tiny fish rather than the larger ones.

Any advice on species to integrate? I've decided on neon tetras for sure, they were the first fish I ever owned besides a school of ****ation mollies that kept the tank stocked. Lmao

Thats why I love my ember tetras. they are awesome little guys. They stay pretty small though, so I have to be careful not to get any tankmates who can eat them!

And my question is toward the 10 gallon. I have my plans for the 55 gallon already.

My best suggestions would be embers, a few more guppies, dwarf corys, or a small group of neons (although I have heard mixed reviews about neons with bettas). I don't know anything about the crab species though, so I do not know what he is compatible with. I bet he is cool though. I LOVE crabs.

if you decided to get more fishes and bring back the guppies, you can get ember tetras or cardinal tetras or neon tetras, or harlequin rasboras.
They said that they were wild type, which are smaller, and I believe have shorter, and clear colored tails. I have some in my ten gallon, and they are as I described.

I agree! I started with a 5 g betta tank now two years later I have 10 g for hermit crabs, 40 g 55 g and now a 75g it's a very addictive and expensive hobby (fish crack) lol!
