Let's hear it your favorite freshwater fish for a ten gallon. Pictured if you like. Message me on the fishes and I may feature them on a YouTube video in a new 10g tank!

Male Betta will be the best. Also you can go for pair of angels. If wanna go for smaller fish go for guppy. But I will go for betta and a pair of Molly may be.

As my name suggests, I am obsessed with gouramis! They are really endearing and I have a 10 Gallon set up just for my gouramis. My tank contains all dwarf species of gourami.

Bettas and ember tetras. My favorite combo.
Angels and mollies do not belong in 10 gallons imo.
How many species of dwarf gourami are there? I thought the dwarf gourami was the only one. I aso thought it was the only one who could be in a 10g, and then just one of them.

+1 Yes. That's a better choice.

From my research, fish breeders are coming up with all kinds of different variations of the same fish. I frown upon color injecting but the breeder I went to had babies that looked like the one in the picture above and thus has created the single variation with lots of careful breeding. Dwarf gouramis (on top of the orange one) look like that and the orange one is of dwarf honey variety. So realistically there's only really 4 dwarf sized variations I know of (thick lipped, honey, Pygmy, and the regular dwarf). I call them dwarf but really they are just smaller gouramis in the family, the smallest being the Pygmy.

Ok, those are not dwarfs, just small. Careful, it causes confusion since there if a species called a dwarf gourami. I guess i should have refined my question. I was asking to see if you were refering to the color varieties of the dg, or refering to other small species of gourami. Also, I don't think honeys belong in a 10 gallon tank.

Yeah, I own "dwarfs gouramis." The blue/orange ones. I also own one honey. I've asked the petstore and breeder and they told me I own a "dwarf honey gourami." Those are their exact words. I don't know if I should trust them because the one fish I have looks like a color-injected thick lipped. I don't approve or appreciate color-injecting in fish, and if this is true this would upset me.

Petstores do not always give relibale info. Sorry, its my fault for leading this astray, but we should get back to the topic at hand rather than discuss this more here. Like I said, its my fault, sorry.
My other favorite 10 gallon fish would be guppies. Every color combo under the sun.
