What to do now?

Now i have a emty 10g after my poor little froggy kermit died. So now i need to know what to do with it. Any suggestions on what to put into it? or should i just leave this one empty? I had a gold gourami in it but i moved him back to the 20g tall. The reason i pulled him out was because he was really aggressive towards the weaker golden gourami. So i don't know what i am gonna do if he does it again to him. But i hope the weaker one is stronger now. So what shuld i do with the tank? Give me ideas.. Should i get another frog?

Poor Kermit! Hopefully your gourami will find a new buddy soon.

In the tank that the frog is in.
Ph-0
nitrates-0
nitrites-0

It is now not set up. Took it down now they are both dead and were the only ones in the tank. All my other tanks are perfect. I am just gonna start from scratch with a 10 gallon. I actually found 2 new craiglist deals that are awsome.

saltwater aquarium
30 GALLON FISH TANK

So i actually am looking at these at the moment. If either of these go through for me i will be holding off on the 10 gallon idea. But i still want ideas. If these craiglist ideas go through then i might just set it up as a QT tank.

PH was zero? That can't be right. Did you mean ammonia was zero?

Iff'n yer PH was zero I think I found the problem...other than that, what are you filling the tank with? sometimes your tap water will have high chlorine or heavy metals that will kill the fish...did either of the critters show any signs of disease or sickness? or odd swimming behaviors?

This is not my first time around guys. I know. I have been keeping FW fish for atleast 5 years. I believe the frog i got started with a deformaty and thats what killed it. And i think stress killed the gourami. My parents made me move the tank the night before, then i did a water change, then his friend kermit died, then i had to pull him out of the tank because my parents wanted me to break the little 5 gallon down (would have done anyways), and then i started acclemating him to a new tank. So yes, i am pretty sure that i knew what killed them. Besides i was behind on 1 water change do to me having a family emergency, so that didn't help.

If you guys read closely i made a joke, Flake asked my water parameters and i said 0 on everything because i broke the tank down by that time so there was no way to know. As for using tap water, I never do, i try to avoid this always and i haven't used tap in years. I use a water machines water from a small market like 5 min away. And if i do i let it sit 24 hours and use dechlorinizer.
