Bucephalandras!

Nice! I saw that sale too and sent him a PM like an hour after his post went up haha.

I'm actually in the process of tearing down my main buce farm tank so I'll be unloading a ton too.

Micro rasboras such as chili rasboras would work, as would fish such as the dwarf puffer, scarlet badis and pygmy sunfish.

Yeah, just treat them like an anubias. I use lava rock mainly for mine as it is very porous with lots of little nooks and crags to anchor on to, but I've also grown them fine on driftwood, SS mesh,...

Yeah we need to know what the drop checker reads. It's quite a bit of light on a 10g so the co2 would need to be high.

tiger barb tank mates

Convicts or kribs can generally hold their own against tiger barbs. With a 40 gallon I'd definitely bump up the number in the school though. Maybe like 12-15 (after you've cycled, of course).

Personally I'd call it a day with what you got already. Any chance you can upgrade to something like a 20L?

What is a good light?

I'd look at a Finnex 24/7. It's dimmable so you could bring down the PAR to suit your needs but you'd also have the option of bumping it up later too!

I find honey gouramis very fun to watch, plus they're one of the hardiest fish I've kept. They have a lot of grace in terms of their movement but also exhibit a great deal of curiosity as they glide...

You don't need these products. If you really wanted to supplement your aquasoil you could add a little Osmocote+ to the bottom of the tank but even that isn't necessary. Also note that your aquasoil...
