Stocking 10 gal tank

Hi I'm trying to figure out what to put in a 10 gal tank with a Betta. I am thinking about
3-4 panda corries
2 adf
And a couple ghost shrimp
I don't want to over stock the tank but sort of want a variety

I would do either the pandas or the adfs; doing both would probably overstock your tank. You can add ghost shrimp with either, they have a very low bioload. If you do cories go for four, they like bigger groups.

Yeah I love my panda cories, they're so cute! I have four in a ten gallon; I'm going to add a betta eventually, still waiting for the right one.

Ok between the panda cories or the adf I'd rather have the cories so no adfs as cute as I think they are defantly don't want to overstock and have unhappy or unhealthy fish. And I'll make sure to get 4 panda cories when I finally get to that point.

Depending on the temperment of the betta you could add 4-6 guppys in with it.

I also breed and often sell guppies, I have the following strains.

Double Dark Blue Moscows, Half Blacks, and Albino Blue Topaz.

If your interested in purchaseing a pair or trio just pm and i'll let you know what I currently have ready to sell. Or if you just want to see pictures pm me.

EDIT: NVM lol I was looking at my 5.5, not my ten! You could try guppies, but the betta could be aggressive towards them because of the colors, so you could try female guppies. But then they will probably have babies lol.

I say go for the cories, but make sure you get a smooth/soft substrate like sand or smooth stones.

I think the cories would be best bet for me.
As far as the substrate would Something like caribsea gravel work? It says it's a fine grade gravel

I am not sure, it looks like it would be rough to the touch.

To be safe I'll just do sand.
Thanks for the help! :)
