Setting the combination for my ten gallons tank

Hello everybody

I am thinking to set a 10 gallons tank with some small fishes like 4 guppies or danios or endler's livebearer, 2 dwarf gourami, and 3 or 4 cory catfish or schrimp. Is it good?

What would be your advice?

Thanks

I would personally only keep 1 dwarf gourami in a 10 gallon unless it is heavily planted, the 4 cories would be good as long as you stuck to one of the smaller species but you could keep most of those together in a tank. You also have to remember that danios and such are schooling fish and are best kept in a group of 5 or more. dont forget to let your tank cycle either!

I'd say as long as the Cory's are Pygmy, possibablly pandas. Then 3 endlers, guppys have a much heavier bioload. And a honey gourami would be better, but a dwarf works, so how bout
4 Pygmy Cory's
3 endlers
1 dwarf gourami

Hello guys,

I have questions. I need to know the combination of genders for endlers, gourami and corys.

I have read I need to put 1 male endler for two or three females (what can I do with frys when they come? They would over populate my tank I think.

For gouramies, I know one male and one female to avoid fights between them but I need to aware when the female is pregnant.

Finally, how many females and males for cory can I have? I would try to put 5 of them instead of 4 because I read they are schooling fish and they do better in large groups

Please give me your final advice!!!
