Lemon tetras?

I have a brand new betta in a 10 gallon cycled tank, and I was wondering if lemon tetras (presumably 6 or 7 of them) would be compatible with him. Would I be overstocking the tank? Do bettas generally have a "problem" with tetras?

Tetras usually are a bad choice. They are notorious for fin nipping. If you are going to try any kind of tetra, Neon's are the best choice.

Sequin (m), Shortcake (f), Westley (m), and Sir Righty of Walton (m).

Oh dear, my new guy is kinda aggressive, so I shouldn't risk it. I'd get some corys but...I have to admit I really just don't like them. Any other small, bright schooling fish compatible with bettas?

Platyt's are great. And the fry will be a snack your betta.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

But having about 6 or so Platy's wouldn't be overcrowding?
