I have a ten gallon that used to be divided until my male vt passed away. I have still have my male hm, who has been with me for a month now.

With my vt I was able to keep neon tetras, ghost shrimp and a ADF. But with the new guy I am kinda scared on what I could keep with him since I do not know his personality yet.

He is in a 10 gallon, gravel substrate, heavily (fake) planted, I do weekly water changes, whisper tetra filter, and a air stone.

What would be good tankmate or tankmates to go with him?

One question though, can anyone refer me to a ADF care site? Or if you are very knowledgable on them could you give me some care tips. The one I had only lived 6 months, I am curious on the care for them since I am willing to try a ADF again.

All my ADF's die, so no help there. Any kind of shrimp (except Macroborium) would be fine. Neon's should be fine in a group of five. Harlequin rasboras would be good too. 5 pygmy cories are another option, as well as A CPO crayfish or a marble cray.

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

That sucks. I like the ADF's but I was not informed on care so I might of miscared for it.

I am planning on checking out the local Aquarium store after work. Going to see what they have in today.

Thanks though for the suggestions!

That is fine. Thanks. Yeah he does that alot. He likes to watch when I feed them. But he only watches my 55 gallon, never my 10 gallon.
