What are good fishes to go with guppies?

Hello, I am new to fishkeeping, and I have started out with a freshwater tank. It is ten gallons and properly cycled, and I now have three male guppies and an African dwarf frog in it. I want to get one or two more males, and was wondering what other fish would go well with my fish and frogs?

Hello Humm...

A 10 gallon tank presents a real challenge to keep clean. So, you should keep just a few, small fish in it. You could add 3 or 4 more male Guppies, but no more. You should also have a reliable water testing kit and monitor the water chemistry a couple of times a week. Frequent water changes will be needed to keep the water pure for the fish. I would also recommend putting in a floating plant like Anacharis. It's a good, natural water filter.
