Smile Betta Friends?

I am new to the website and I love Betta and wanted to get one and I have a 10 gallon tank. But i wanted more than one fish so I went to my local pet store and they told me to get the fish i wanted and wait a week then get a Betta. So i got 2 Red Wing Platies and Two Snails. Its been almost a week and a half i have not go my betta yet. is it to late to get my betta? Or will the fish that i got not work out?

They said to put the Platies in then in a week get my beeta because if the Platies have territory to claim the beeta wont fight them.

Wow, the pet store people are educated over there:D Most of them are ignorant -___- but they are right! It is best to introduce the tank mates first, so the betta is entering their territory. However-- make sure you betta will get along with the fish, some wont. Make sure you have a back up plan if all fails!
The platies are fine, and its never too late to get the betta, since platies are peaceful fish! Beware, they may nip though. Also, watch out for your snails-- there have been cases of eaten atennaes because the betta!

One 70.G Cichlid Tank-2 Parrotfish, 1 Red Bay Snook, 1 Jack Dempsy, 2 Mayan Cichlids, and 1 Spotted Catfish
1.5 Gallon tank with male butterfly halfmoon-Charlie and 1 mystery snail
10 Gallon tank with female veiltale- Lulu and 2 Mystery Snails
3.5 Nano Saltwater Tank with yellow goby-Buttercup, 3 red leg cortez crabs, 2 nassarius snails, 3 hidden cup corals
One misfit jack russel-rat terrier mix-Ginger

Unless you pre-cycled your tank, it would be better to wait longer--let it go though the cycle of creating good bacteria for the current bio-load, then get the betta. Also better to keep the betta separate for two or three weeks to make sure he's healthy if you can deal with that.
