Hey All,

Just got back into the hobby. Went from 3500 gallons to 10. Give some ideas on what to do with a ten gallon!

Use it to build a diy sump for a 29 or 40 breeder since you cannot go from 3500 gallons to 10 and not have a relapse back into multiple tank syndrome anyway :twisted: Stay away from the Petco $1 gallon tank sale and January MAS auction. 8) Work those 12 steps save yourself while you still can :wink:

Or try some shell dwellers if you have never kept them before might work in a ten for you. Sand substrate, few shells or pvc elbows and caps a couple rocks and sponge filter. Congrats on getting reaquainted with the hobby again. Good luck let us know what you do with the ten.

Maybe shell dwellers from Tanganyika.
IMO, better choice would be pair of rams or apistos if you care to switch to New World cichlids.
Like a complete unknown
