Hey <3

Hey guys I'm Haley from Ohio, I'm a fifteen , nearly sixteen, year old girl just starting into the hobby due to the fact of a long story of rescuing a goldfish at the fair , which I rehomed . After that my dad bought me a ten gallon tank as a suprise and now I'm trying to figure out what to home in this pretty little tank.


I'm thinking some neon tetras, a betta and a mystery snail/ghost shrimp

Neons are supposedly really sensitive. Bettas are good. I haven't had much luck with snails and I've never tried ghost shrimp.

20 of either would be far too many for a 10G tank long term. A betta and a small school of either would work. Micro rasboras or the like would as well.

I was thinking like six? Would that be a big enough group?

Also should I add more plants or is that plenty? I went with fake because I have bad luck with plants

I wouldn't do neons with a betta in a ten if that's what you are planning because they will really bother a betta with their activity.

Instead I would do the neons and three cories or the betta and three cories.
