Exclamation female betta tankmates?

Hey guys, sorry I've been gone for so long.
Amir and Horizon are doing great :)
Havn't got the time to breed them yet though :/

But anyway,
I'm thinking of setting Horizon up in a 10 gallon tank with some other fish.
I know not to put goldfish and the like in the tank. But I was wondering what would be good tankmates.

I've thought about guppies and maybe an african dwarf frog.
Should I not do that, or is that okay?

I'm doing so-so, you? (:

As a half-way sorta answer, I think an ADF would be okay, but I'm thinking it depends more on your bettas temperament. I've heard of bettas getting along with mollies, platys, guppies, neons, ect. ect. and being just fine, then I've heard of bettas killing everything in sight, without a second thought.

right, but i've heard that female betta are more passive towards other fish. If i get guppies though, should i just get dull colored ones or can i get bright big ones cause the betta is a female?

I would probably say more dull-colored ones. While more passive, females are still pretty aggressive :P Probably not a good idea to even let her have the idea of a new toy or treat.

lol, alright.
I was also thinking of getting some feeder minnows and putting them in the tank with Otto (Goldfish). Since Dollie passed away he hasn't been himself. Real jittery and such.

Can't help you there :P I kept two goldfish, and both died within a week. Had them in a one gallon bowl was my problem, but I've learned from my mistake. Good luck with them, though, and I'm sorry about the loss.
