I have a 10 gallon tank that I want to use for something.

I know most pets don't comfortably live in something so small so I was thinking something like a planted aquarium with just plants or a terrarium.

Any ideas?

Why not something like a scorpion?

shrimp and plants

Sea monkeys are cool as FUCK, honestly. They only live about three weeks and i'm not sure what can live with them, but they're definitely fun as hell to watch and very easy to care for.

I'd say plants, bettas, shrimp, snails, or a combo of them. My ten gal has a betta, some neon tetras, some plants and some shrimp and they're doing great. Some bettas will fuck heavy with any other creatures though, so it's case-by-case. I'm personally really enjoying my setup, but I'm not sure if it'd be harder than a planted tank. Something like a scorpion or a spider could work, too. I don't know anything about bugs, but maybe you could look into that or some other anon could help you.

Those thai crabs that are super small.

>a planted aquarium with just plants
I find it easier to keep a plant tank looking nice if there are shrimp and snails in there to clean up the algae. It also means you have to worry less about fertilizing.
If you don't want anything flashy, you could get a couple Amano shrimp and black nerites.

Ten gallons is pretty small for most vertebrates, but there are some small fish or frogs that would be comfortable in a tank like that.

You can have one betta there. Or a bunch of read cherry shrimp.

I think a basically plant-only tank with a few snails might be cool.
>>

my 10 gal has a male betta and 3 von rio tetras with a live moss in there as well, with a heater and a filter bettas are extremely active and curious and they're a lot of fun to watch, i highly recommend it

and make sure to feed them and when they overpopulate, get a single pea puffer.

The small tank could be modified into an external filter (submerged or fluidized bed) for a bigger aquarium.

But animal suggestions:
* Heavily planted tank with small shrimps and one male betta
* Aquatic invertebrates like backswimmers, water scorpions, daphnia, diving beetles
* Hissing cockroaches / Death's head cockroach
* Praying mantis

Cockroaches. Or some other insects. Theyll be more than happy with something like that

Or you can get a tarantula. Even a giant praymantis would be just fine in there.

I have an heterometrus spinifer i just moved to a 10gal. I also have a brachypelma smithi that i just changed its bedding material in a 10 gal.

I have a 10g with java ferns, amano shrimp, and ramshorn snails. It's like the easiest aquarium in the world.
