3rd tank setup

Just got myself a 10 gallon tank to house dwarf chiclid... Don't know what kind yet? And don't know if they can breed with different dwarfs? So far I've used gravel as a base with 2 living plants, got it cycling now but I think it will take a while as gravel has made the tank very cloudy! Will have to do a few water changes before I buy the fish, gives me time to choose what dwarfs to add to their own community.

For a 10 gal you're pretty limited to maybe a pair of bolivian or german blue rams, but that's probably about it with the Cichlids. Apistos prefer a harem and need a larger tank, shell-dwellers need more room for territory. Most angels get too large.

I'd reccomnend not doing dwarfs in this tank size. It's pretty small. But if you are set, I'd say 2 Bolivians

Was only thinking of putting a pair in their, then hopefully get them to spawn, then when the fry are fish ill get them a bigger tank

I'm going to put some rock in there as well, I've been told wood ain't very good, will make rock formation to form a cave, just have to break the marble rock I brought into pieces of art work
