OK well, I have a 10g tank with 3 guppies(2 female and 1 male), 2 platies (both male), and 1 cory cat(getting 2 more hopefully soon Very Happy ).
I would like to get some more fish. I don't want anything thats too hard to take care of. And it would be nice if the fish was under 10-15 dollars.
could you give me some suggestions on what else I should buy???
Thanks in advance!

I think with your current stock, a few more cories is all you should get. You tank is going to be stocked up pretty well after this.

I would only get a few more cories, but if you really want to add another fish, I would just add one more female guppy.

Actually it's the male guppies who will fight and the ratio is usually recommended at 1m/3f to divert the male from breeding with the same female over and over again and harrassing her to death

If you are looking for an nice centerpiece fish, you could comfortably add a dwarf gourami to your tank without any problems (and also upgrade the cories at the same time).

I can see your tank looking great with another cory and a dwarf gourami. Dwarf gouramis are hardy and inexpensive, not to mention slow-moving, graceful, and beautiful. I can imagine your tank looking lovely with some apple snails, as well (if you like colorful little snails that clean up your tank!) I bet your tank is beautiful! Good luck!!!
