Hi Guys,

I'm looking at getting my Mum a 10L Nano Cube (20cm x 20cm) and was wondering what two fish I could buy to stock it? It will be heated and well filtered, so I'm hoping for a good choice.

Cheers in advance! /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" />

Planted moss tank with shrimp gets my vote /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> 10l (less with displacement) is too small a volume of water to keep fish in, in my opinion /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Thanks Bully, but shrimp aren't an option.

It does actually take the whole 10L with room to spare. There must be a couple of fish suitable for a reasonably small volume of water, not everyone has the room or time to be looking after big tanks!

Actually the bigger the tank, the easier and lesser the maintanance - and I agree with Bully; it's not suitable for fish.

Ok, so this seems like a non-starter! /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" />

Makes me wonder why they sell Goldfish bowls.

Because they make money that way. Serious gold-fish keepers are saying that the minimum size for goldfish is about 100 liter, and each fish needs 40-60 liter.

It's the same thing as petrol stations selling alcohol. Doesn't mean you are supposed to drink it on the way home... /wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" />
