help me stock my 10g


My 10g is just about finnished cycling, so i need to get an idea of what i want to put in it. some fish/inverts that i like the look of are: chili rasboras, bristlenose plecos, otos, pygmy gouramis, rummynose tetra, spotted or forktail blue eyes , thai micro crabs, and RCS. but i am open to any suggestions as well!
idk if all of these are fit for a 10g so please tell me if they are not,
i would rather have at least 2 kinds of fish instead of a species only tank.


What are your guys opinions/experiences?

The bristlenose pleco should be in a 20g or larger. Rummynoses need a bigger tank, same with the spotted/forktail blue eyes.

Go with the chili rasboras and the RCS.

Endlers or celestial pearl danios, and RCS. They all stay small and are stunning little fish!

what do you guys think about having some chili rasbora, along with a few pygmy cories OR otos? like how many of each would be comfortable?

Yea, something like 6-8 chilis and 8 pygmy cories would be cool.

btw i love the PFRs (are these as easy to keep as RCS? are they pretty much the same thing?) but idk if my filter can be made shrimp safe.




idk if i will be able to find a sponge prefilter thing for it..
i thought about trying pantyhose too.


i plan on getting a new filter later on, so maybe ill just have to wait for shrimpies
