10 gal tank with betta and ....

Hi,

I am starting a 10 gal aquarium for the Betta of my girlfriend, I wish to put a other couple of fish with him. Any suggestion ?

Anyone tried a betta with a trio of desert goby ?

Corydoras catfish work well with Betta fish. A school of 4-5 would be good, and there's many different varieties!

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

I know for the cory, but I was hoping something new, because in my 53 gal, i already have a school of 6 ;) But thanx Sweeda88 :)

Is Desert Goby or Badis Badis a option or not ? I am still open to any suggestions :)

I've never even HEARD of those fish, and it depends on their level of aggression and how big they get.

The desert goby should be fine. I don't know if the badis badis will though. They are similar to bettas and that may provoke a male.

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