Thanks guys but i think I'm just going to let him take the whole tank for himself. Unless you guys know of a cleaner fish that will eat algae, uneaten food, and act as a maintenance crew lol that would go well with Rascal?

Come Check out Rascal on his official youtube page

Am I correct in after looking at all of these posts, that in my 10g i could put a platy or two with my Betta (when its ready of course, which should be in about two weeks) How many would be good? Its a good 10g with heater, filter, and three silk plants, not to mention two little caves (i plan on getting another cave or two)

It really depends on your Betta. Mine has a lot of finnage and is a slow mover so he doesn't chase anyone or cause trouble. He will eat fry though. Platys are active and fast swimmers. I don't think the betta would bother them. As long as platys aren't fin nippers (of your betta) you should be fine.

If it were me I would try it. Keep your receipt and know the return policy on the platys just in case. You would know fairly quickly if they didn't get along.
