Hello All,
   I haven't been in here in awhile forgive me for being away. I recently acquired a small goldfish and tank from a neighbor that moved and wasn't taking him with her. Goldie, I moved to my 40 gallon after a week or two of quarantine and he is doing quite well. I have been running 6 gallon for about a month or so mostly because I can't decide what to do with it.Yes, I have arrived at the point. I was thinking of putting some small schooling fish such as Neon Tetras, Zebra Danios, Serpea  Tetras. I just don't know how many can live happily in close quarters.I am looking for any ideas, keep in mind I want it colorful.
         Thanks to all

Not much can go into a 6 gallon.  Certainly not any neons, zebras or serpeas.  How about some shrimp or a betta?

I think that the Galaxy Rasbora would do best in at least a 10 gallon size.  Breeder can put them in smaller tanks but, for the common hobbyist, they should be in at least 10 gallons.

Thanks for all the responses all good ideas. I was thinking about a Betta. Always wanted African dwarf frogs and shrimp. Have to go to LFS and look around. I will let you all know what happens.
