do you think a 10g livebearer tan would look good, it would have some mollies, creamsicle and dalmation, and a few guppies{maybe} and the only thing that would not be a fish or plant would be shrimp if that, {probably not]

what do you think of the idea

I am a fan of livebearers but your options are pretty limited in a 10 gallon. If you can manage to get a 20 instead of 10 that would be great. As fast as these things breed you will over run a 10 in no time.

I would feed the fry to my other fish, but do you think the tank would look good, what if i used balloon mollies, i know they smaller, and the only reason i can get the 10g is i get it for free at b.a.s. in bham

i 12:)

i might be able to stack another 10g if my snake dies

i use silicon to make it watertight

you could also do just males so they wont reproduce..i started my livebearers in a 10 gallon and it wasnt long before i upgraded to a 29 gallon and use the 10 for my fry tank.

i personally love the idea since i love mollies. throw in a few cory's and you will see alot of swimming and playing going on in your tank

if you put a male betta in with the mollies or whatever other livebearer you want. the betta will tenaciously hunt the fry. a betta is peaceful enough predator to not bother the adults. just make sure you got a few hiding spots for the betta.
