Stocking future 5-10gallon


This would be a fairly densely planted 5-10 gallon. Im thinking I could do a shoal of pygmy corys or false Juliis and a pair of badis badis, or dario dario (biggest debate point really like them both). Also a small school of some sort of small of tetra or rasbora or not if thats too many fish.

Weekly 10-20% water changes.

Opinions?

Tetras won't do so well in a small tank like that.

Corydoras pygmaeus would be okay (6-10 of them) in a minimum of 10 gallons of water.

Dario dario would be a nice, colorful choice.

Thanks! I was also thinking of Badis badis. I want to add a trio (1 male 2 females) but i'm having trouble finding females for sale.

If you did a 10 gallon how about ember tetras? Embers stay really small, and with good conditions I heard they get a great orange color and are one of the more underrated tetras out there. I have always wanted to do a 10 gallon with pygmies and ember tetras!
