I'm really just looking for a few fish in a little tank for my desk but I don't want boring goldfish! Can someone tell me my options =]?

Hi. Welcome to the forum!

Were you thinking saltwater or freshwater?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

You'd be verrrry limited with saltwater on how much fish you could keep. A ten gallon(about a foot and a half) can only home 2 maybe 3 fish.
And its considered more challenging the smaller the tank is in saltwater . Id do freshwater if you're a begginner. Its less expensive too. There are plenty of Amazing freshwater fish you just gotta look a little harder

You could do a goby and a fire fish. Those are awesome looking fish. A 10 would be good.

I'm think she;s thinking a tiny tank, like a fluval spec or something like that. Those are perfect desk top tanks. If that's the case I think freshwater is gonna be her best bet. I wouldnt want a 10g tank sittingon my desk lol
