Hello,

The other day my daughter asked me why all our fish are from "somewhere else" (meaning not North America). She then asked if there were fish she could put in her 10g tank that are from here...The only ones I could think of are minnows. Any of you Native Fish enthusiasts out there have any suggestions for her...oh, and she's 7, so the easier to care for the better.

Thanks! *w3

Thanks again Susankat, and these all stay relatively small?

No problem. Should be a fun and relatively easy tank to set up and maintain

How about some nice Heterandria formosa. Adult size is about an inch or less and I keep a whole colony of them in a 10 gallon.
This is an adult female next to a pygmy cory that shares the tank with the Heterandria.



A bit more blown up picture of an adult female.

Thanks Oldman, those look cool. I'll show her the pics and see what she thinks.
