Question Is it too much?

Hello there everyone, I would like to know if 7 neon tetras, a betta, and 4 or 5 cories are too much for a 10g tank. I currently have it cycling for about a week or so now. Will I run into any problems with the amount of waste put out? If so, how can I change the current fish I want without overstocking the 10g tank?

Most of the time neons will work, and that is very close to the full capacity of a 10g.

My betta: Alpha - DT Male

The betta and 7-8 neons will work out. No cories, though. Too much. You could have a betta and 4-6 cories, too. But no neons, your choice. Remember to QT! :)

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Agreed.. that's fine if you remove the corys.

What kind of corys? A lot of those require much larger tanks than 10g and can get quite big

I was thinking panda cories, but since many are saying that it's too much for a 10g, I guess i'll go with a betta and 7 neon tetras. Thanks guys !
