I was thinking of using a single small clay pot in my 10g and covering it with moss to disguise it. But I'd like a fish that is a "cave dweller" sort. I'll have to do some research into that.

19 fish in a 10 gal seems a little bit on the high side.

I would suggest planting that thing a lot more heavilly or getting an ovekill sized filter if you want to keep them all.

well, some are going to be moved soon since it is mainly used for grow out. all the fancy guppies were born in another tank and were removed when the other fish were eating them. so in a few weeks they will go back in a 35 gallon hex tank that has 15 fish in it. then the common guppies will become turtle food at the end of the month.
