10 Gallon Fish Tank

A 10-gallon fish tank is a small aquarium and is also classified as a nano tank.

They are a great size if you are on a budget and are not yet ready to spend a lot of money.

This size tank is perfect for a betta fish, a small community of freshwater fish, or a nano saltwater tank.

Please keep in mind that prices do change so these costs are just an estimate.

The costs are just for the hardware and do not include items like substrate, plants, corals, food, fish, and decor.
