betta 10g

Recently just upgraded to a 10g for my male betta and after wanting to get a community tank going I researched on this website and proudly have a good community tank going thanks to all your posts. I have my betta a ADF, 4 rasboras, a couple zebra tetras and also ghost shrimp and everything seems to be going good :)

I'm sorry to say, mate, but I think you are not well stocked, there. Rasboras and tetras (do you mean zebra danios?) need to in schools of at least 5, preferrably 6+. Having just a couple is not good, and even 4 isn't ideal. To fully boost your schools to what they need to be would overstock you even more than you already are, though.
If those are zebra danios, they need a larger tank than ten gallons, ideally, as they are extremely active fish. I would strongly suggest rehoming them and getting an extra rasbora instead.

Life.

Still not great - they need schools of 6 too. I'd rehome them or upgrade to a 20 gallon pronto. :)

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
