    I have a 10 gallon tank. My problem is that Ive been searching online to find some info on some colorful (very colorful) hardy, moderate to easily maintainable small freshwater fish.
    I can only find TETRAS!!! :!: (ahhhh) and although there is nothing wrong with tetras I kinda want a little more exciting looking fish that I wont get board of looking at. Tetras seem to only have one really vibrant color available. (red and blue) and the rest are kinda dull.
    So...if someone knows of a fish that is bright, colorful and will not out grow my 10 gallon tank please let me know! Thank you!!! :)

    I would suggest for a 10 gallon, if you don't mind cichlids, get a Ram Cichlid. You can get up to 2 or maybe 3 of them for a 10 gallon. They only get 3 inches. A very colorful tank I think would be 2 Blue Rams and 10 Neons. :y_the_best:

    get a bigger tank. i have found that small tanks are WAY more work than larger ones. you will have more options with what types of fish to keep.

    i agree, also that is much easier for a person new to the hobby (assuming you are) to make some mistakes on the water quality....a small tank would poison the fish to quickly if something went wrong.
