10 Gallon tank, 1 betta who needs friends. suggestions?

Tank is a 10 gallon with a male betta, heater, 10-20 aqua-tech filter and air pump.
What kind of fish would get along with my betta suggestions and pictures welcome.

I don't know what are you talking about! Me and the voices inside my head will prove you
wrong!

Corydoras catfish, ember tetra, x ray tetra are good starters. Platties if you want livebearers. Shrimp species. I've heard furcata (looking into these for myself) and threadfin rainbows. Kuhli Loaches..

taking a break from fish-keeping.

It really depends on two things:
- whether your betta will accept company, as many will not
- what your water chemistry is like (pH, hardness etc).

Depending on those two factors, these may make suitable tankmates:
- pygmy cories (6-8)
- panda cories (4-6)
- male Endlers Livebearers (3-4)
- ember tetras (6-8)
- shrimp
- nerite or assassin snails

Life.

There's no need to start a second topic btw, someone will answer, just be patient..

Lol there goes bomba with more detailed advice than me ;)

Anyways, x ray tetra, furcata, and spotted cories are good for hard water with high pH.
Loaches, ember tetra, other cory species are good for soft water and lower pH.
