First time betta owner looking for tank mates

What would you suggest to put in a 10G tank with a beta... Our sweet little Timmy looks so lonely. Any suggestions one what kind of fish we can put with him that he will not treat as a snack? He is very mild mannered... not aggressive at all.

Thanks

Jess

Some Cories or Otos would be great.

Yup, cories or ottos. Both are interesting little buggers.

Yep, that's another option. I have both. I have a 10 gallon divided with 2 betta and a 10 gallon with 1 female betta and 4 otos. Both make for interesting tanks.
