Guppies are great beginner fish! That's what I started out with and theY come in a Wide variety of colors! I'm still kind of New to the hobby as well but I've done a good amount of research I also had some ghost shrimp when I first started my 10 gallon cause someone recommended them but shrimp also come in a variety of colors as well.

Man, I am not in the mood of disrespecting anything... I just wanted more options for my aquarium and you don't have to be hurtful just because i can't afford something today.. If I were careless then i would not be here asking for help. By the way I had ordered the API master test kit before you said so.. so.. be a little more supportive or just don't reply at all.. okay.. i did not ask for orders.. just advises..

New Member With A New Aquarium, HELP PLEASE ...

Hi, included some articles to get started and a website where you can check stocking.

Articles to Help you Get Started with your Aquarium


The API master kit is the way to go. Congrats on the purchase, the tests last a very long time and are fairly reliable. The tests will tell you if the tank is cycled and stable.

I feed my fish once a day. About as much as they can eat in several minutes. Missing a day say once a fortnight does them no harm.

Q5 - water changes of say 30% to 50% each week is best and cheapest you can do to keep the tank healthy.

I have tropical fish so also have a heater to go with the filter (winter here so tempted to sleep with the fish).

I was not trying to sound disrespectful, merely just give sound advice and what will happen if the fish are not rehomed.
