That sounds like WAY too much for a 10 gallon. From what I have seen Danio can be agressive. I had 2 glolight danios 2 corys and an octo in a 5 gallon and one Danio picked on the other until it died. Moved them to a 29 and got 7 glowlight tetras and the Danio pounded them too so I got rid of him. I think you would be better to do something like a school of neons, a school of corys, a couple or 3 otocinculs and then maybe your 3 Guppys

Plus you probably wouldn't want a betta in with them, too terrritorial/aggressive.

When I do the math that is probably too many fish for a 29 let alone a 10

No betta much too crowded for him. Mollies need a bigger tank. Corys want to be in groups. I think danios need more swimming room. Pick one group ie guppies or one of the tetras or the minnows. They will do very well in a ten by themselves.

ok no betta.

mike47517 09-30-2008 05:22 PM

can i get the endlers.

mike47517 09-30-2008 05:22 PM

and what about the Otocinclus Catfish .

the endlers will have fry if you have both sexes... so either be prepared to pull them out of the tank and have other homes for them or decide to let them be eaten.

otos from what I have heard are somewhat like cories- bottom dwellers, algae munchers, etc. i might just get another cory or three to go with the albino you already have.

my cory dont look like he eats algea to much he swims fast and never seems to stop.
