Stocking a 9 non std tank

Post by l_l_l on Mon Jan 25, 2016 9:35 am

Hey everybody!
I have a 9gallon Eheim tank that is quite different in size.
It is rather high, and not really long.
I used to have a dwarf puffer but it unfortunately died on me while I was on vacation. I thought I gave it enough snails, but looks like I didn't Sad
I really like it altho, now I can't think of what fish I could put in it.
I'm wanting to get a betta, altho I'd really like to get non standard fish.

My question is,
What would YOU guys put in a 14" x 12" x 12" high tank?

Any of you Montrealers able to supply me with any fish that would greatly enjoy this planted tank?

Cheers! Very Happy

My first thought is shrimp. Sorry, I don't breed shrimp so I cannot supply you.
My second thought is sparkling gouramis. Sorry I don't have these either but I loved them when I had them.
