Extra 10 Gallon! What should I do?

Post by Trvr14 » Mon Apr 16, 2012 11:34 pm

I have an extra 10 gallon tank and I was thinking about doing a one or two fish tank. I would like to do an aggressive fish so that I can have fun feeding it. I am looking for some suggestions on what fish would be good to do this with.

10g will be a small permanent home for a fish or two, I would suggest to go to at least a 20g, will be interesting to see what the pros suggest.

10g would make a cool display for a single frogfish!! They meet all that criteria! Or a small N. Wennerae mantis shrimp.

Quarantine tank!!! Most important thing I made the mistake and not having one and lost every fish that I have do to ich. It would have been easy to take care of if I had one but I don't and paid the price one of the best investments to make. I know that this is the next thing that I am buying

I can't argue with this advice :clap: a Quarantine tank, but I sure like Scott's advice also a Frog Fish, thats one cool looking fish.
