I have a single common goldfish (about 2-3 inches long) in my 10 gallon tank. Although it won't happen any time soon, my family was thinking of putting some neon tetras in the tank too. Sushi previously ate his former tankmate who was slightly smaller whem they were bot an inch long, and I'm afraid that will happem to the tetras too. Will it or am I just being super careful?

Here's a vid of my planted 10 gallon aquarium. The whole idea started out as just a small 2-3 gallon Betta tank, then evolved to a 10 gallon community tank. Heihachi, my Crowntail Betta gets along great with the other fish. Contrary to popular belief, Bettas can be very social animals. They can be kept with other fish as long as those fish don't have big tails/fins and look like other Bettas. At one point, I put him in his own 5 gallon tank and he just looked totally lost. By the third day or so, he was just laying in a corner of the tank. Turns out he was depressed. I put him back in the 10 gallon tank and he was right back to normal. Anyway, here's how I have the tank stocked:

Fish: 1-Crowntail Betta 2-African Dwarf Frogs 3-Sunfire Platys 4-Ghost Shrimp 7-Black Neon Tetras

Plants: Amazon Sword Anacharis Dwarf Hair Grass Moss Ball (I forget what's in the back right, so if you know, feel free to fill me in)

That might be a larger fish load than normal for a 10 gallon tank, but I'm running a Tetra Whisper EX30 filter, which is way large, and I do a 20% water change weekly. For the plants, I keep 1 Flourish root tab near the base of the sword and dose the water with API Leaf Zone once a week. The sword grows nice and steady and the anacharis grows like crazy. I'll usually propagate a couple pieces every couple weeks. The only problem I have is a little brown algae and some green algae on the substrate. I might lay off the Leaf Zone for a little and see if that helps.

Ten-gallon aquariums are too small for many fish. While a 2-inch-long goldfish may be fine in such a tank for a brief time, he will eventually reach 10 inches or more in length, making him entirely too large for such an aquarium. Nevertheless, several small fish species, including neons, cardinals and small tetras, may live long, healthy lives in 10-gallon tanks.Showing you guys my 20 gal long Aqueon fish tank , with live plants , 4 guppies & a baby bristlenose pleco! :D let me know if you guys want me to maybe do this weekly? :o

I hope you guys enjoy my tank!Ten-gallon aquariums are the most common size of tank stocked at many pet stores, but their ubiquity is a reflection of pet retail marketing rather than of the husbandry needs of most fish: More customers are likely to invest in pet fish if they can purchase a low-priced 10-gallon aquarium rather than a larger, more expensive and often more appropriate habitat. Often, 10-gallon tanks are sold in "starter" kits along with a small filter, a jar of fish food and other basic items to help make it easier for customers to simply grab a fish or two and go.We bought and set up a brand new 10 Gallon tank! We can't decide what to put in it though. Guppy fry from our pregnant guppies or an awesome Male Crowntail Betta? Let me know what you guys think! Also why are there holes in my plants!? I'm guessing from the fish nipping at it but what can i do to prevent that then?
