Question Compatible fish ideas?

I am looking at putting other types of fish in with my 5 female bettas in the 10 gallon tank. Should I put any other types or just leave the 5 females along as they get along with no problems? What types of fish are great with bettas and are easy to take care of?

America (f, HM), Spirit (m, DBLT), Rescue (f, VT), Missile (m, HM), Purnurple (m, HMPK), Dragon (m, VT), platies, mollies, sorority tank of 21 females, AND lots of guppies.

Well, a 10 gallon is really too small to add any other compatible species as most of them are schooling and you already have 5 females. You could get away with a snail or some shrimp, or add a couple more females, but that's really it IMO

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry
8 German Blue Ram, 5 Green Dragon BNP, 4 Albino BNP, 4 Calico BNP, 6 Red BNP, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 2 ADF, 7 Peppered Cories, & 6 Tiger Endlers + Fry
12 full time tanks, 4 NPT, 6 QT/Breeders

Well I plan on buying either a 5 gallon tank or another 10 gallon tank. can't decide which yet. I want to buy a male so I may buy a 10 gallon tank then add a few other fish with him.

America (f, HM), Spirit (m, DBLT), Rescue (f, VT), Missile (m, HM), Purnurple (m, HMPK), Dragon (m, VT), platies, mollies, sorority tank of 21 females, AND lots of guppies.

Yeah, adding fish to the new 10 gallon wouldnt be bad! You could get a small school of rasboras or corys. I think as long as you dont get anything that resembles a betta's bright colors and aren't aggressive, they will be fine with the betta.

I think it's a bit full already. Corycats need shoals and I've heard about certain bettas eating Neons. I'd say...

PYGMY cories can live in groups of 5 in a ten gallon. Why did you use my post from another thread?
