10g stocking

Planning a new 10g tank soon and I want maybe some blue velvet shrimp and maybe crystal shrimp or rcs. Maybe some neon tetras, what else can I put in?

Well, putting neons in a 10 is kind of a matter of debate. Some think that neons are active and need a bigger tank, others say that after all they are small fish and can be kept in there.

I think a heavily planted tank with some rcs would look very nice. Then you could put in some nano fish. Some examples of nano fish are green neon tetras, endler's livebearers, and chili rasbora.

I don't see a problem. I would also put some blue rasboras or jae barbs.

Why not look into ember tetras? They stay a deep red and do great in that size tank, or there is chilli rasbora.

Maybe with the green neons, you could get 3 endlers. I love those fish.

I don't know much about serpae tetras, someone else will have to tell you about that. As for zebra danios, they are much too active to be in a 10 gallon. They require at least a 20 gallon long.
