@Okami ive been told by some people that guppies are good but NOT ones with "flashy" tales that may cause a betta to think it is another betta and fight. And ill let you guys know how the cloth works out.

My Aquarium Stats

Gallons: 2.5
Fish: 1 Betta - Sushi (VT+Bi-Color)
Plants: 1 Live Plant (Forgot Type, but its green! XD )
Gravel: Natural and Blue
Other: Has A Filter and Lighting
Status: Running, but looking plain. Going to store for more stuff.

><((((> This is a fish, copy and paste him into your signature to help him achieve world domination.

Dwarf cories, or any relatively small sized cories, small shoal of otos. Maybe some african dwarf frogs, you could do some snails, shrimps (if they get cover).

The bigger the tank the more choices you have when it comes to tankmates.

I know about guppies. What about Danios (glo fish), and Khuli Loaches? I want to keep my Betta's tank (when its bigger) with species found in a Blackwater pool

Well generally speaking 10g do not have the base footprint that is recommended for kuhli loaches, so no. Glofish is no also, they like to be in shoals of 8 - 10, each fish gets to about 2" long, so you'd pretty much fully stocked if you add eight Glofish in. Glofish are genitically mutated Zebra Danios, you could try 8 Glofish and one Betta and you're fully stocked (100%).

You can do it though, I would recommend lots of live plants to help with ammonia and a good filter (probably double your tank size, a filter for a 20g tank).

Cory catfish work in a ten gallon either 6 pygmys or 4 of a larger species. You can't keep less than 4 cories in a tank though.

If it's 20 gallon long, you can do a variety of fish, for bottom dwellers; kuhli loaches, cories, otos, etc. Middle; almost any type of tetra, platies, guppies (no flashy/long tails type), mollies, etc. Top; Your betta.

You could also start a sorority with your 20g if you prefer that over a community tank.

Haha bala sharks are generally not good community fishes, gouramis they're not ideal either. . .

You have a huge variety for a 20g tank, doesn't have to be just a blackwater tank.
