ok. first thing is first, whether you are doing a sorority or a community tank, it is HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended that you cycle your tank before getting any fish

why is this?

with an uncycled tank, you will need to do atleast a 100% water change every week.

for a 10 gallon, that is a heck of a lot of water to change. I wouldn't leave it for your poor grandparents to do it for you either.

Look in to tank cycling. cycle the tank first, then begin stocking....

after your tank is cycled you can then do a weekly 25-30% change instead.

and to cycle a tank, you will need a filter.

Glolight tetras do great with my betta!!! They are calmer than neons, so they are easily kept in a ten gall. I have 7 in mine.

Bryan, my advice as a student with bettas is that if you can't take care of them yourself, don't get anymore. Also if they are your bettas, take as much resposiblity as you can :)

You probably should have stuck with a smaller tank, like a 2 gallon for one betta to make it easier. If you have multiple, it might be best to put them all in the 10 gallon granted they fit.

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops
