What should I use as my focus fish - 10gal

+1 on the guppies or endlers. They come in beautiful colors and are entertaining to watch.

Glad you aren't considering Goldies. As a cold water fish, they are not compatible with tetras. Moreover, they need much larger accommodations.

I would most defiantly stay away from goldies. I would get a dwarf gourami if I was you! Or maybe a trio of male guppies. Make sure they're all male otherwise they'll breed like crazy...

Well everybody, I'd thought I'd update you on what fish we chose. My son fell in love with the dalmatian mollies he saw in the lfs "cow fish" as he calls them. Not wanting mollies, we settled for platies. So we are currently waiting on a special order of dalmatian platies from our lfs. One male and two females. aqadvice thinks this is a good stocking, so I'll go with it Can't wait till they come in!

Having kids interested in the hobby is cool. I am glad you went with hs cow look.
