I recently purchased a 30L Nano tank but i'm not sure what to stock in it.
I was thinking that i would like this tank to house just the one fish so my first thought was a male Betta,but i know i would get bored with him in a couple of weeks(sorry Betta lovers) so then i got thinking of a Dwarf Puffer,there is a few nice one's out there but as it's only 30L i think it might be a bit to small for it.

Has anyone got a suggestion as to what fish would suit and be happy on it's own in a 30L tank?,and have you seen any around the Dublin area? Preferably a bit unusual but not that fussed really

Here is a picture of the tank as it is right now but decor can be changed to suit:




Any help appreciated,cheers

I wouldn't go with the puffer idea personally.....
The majority of puffers require brackish setups and full salt setups

Bleeding heart tetra's? Something along those lines?

Cheers for the reply Hammie.....Although the Puffers that i was thinking about are Freshwater,Brackish water wouldn't really be an issue in keeping them,it's just the thought of keeping one in a 30L cube just doesn't sit well in my head for some reason,but i'm sure there's many out there keeping them in something similar without a problem.

Bleeding Heart Tetra's wouldn't really be my thing dude,kinda looking for something a bit different that i would not of kept in the past,and as it's only 30L i'm a bit limited.

Thanks again

Now this fish could be exactly what i'm after,i could maybe even fit 3-4 in this tank (1M 2-3F).......I could even leave the tank as it is,just add a bit more Anubias for cover and spawning and then happy days :)
Now for the hard part.........Were would i find these fish?.....Cheers Homer :)

Nice set up

How about some cherry barbs and pygmy corys? Plenty of activity in the tank with them, maybe some Java moss too would look the part.

I would personally not put any cherry barbs in a 30 litres, they need at least twice that size.
