10 gal male tank or sorority tank?

I am currently cycling a 10 gallon tank. I can't decide whether I want to do a male tank with 2 ADF's and a few snails or if I want to do a sorority tank w/ around 5 females and a type of bottom feeder (any suggestions). I do have a 5 gallon tank that only needs a hood and a heater. I really like the males. Do I go ahead and do a male tank and then down the road move him into the 5 gal. Or would that be cruel? Would the ADF's be able to fit in the 5 gal with the male? Any suggestions would be welcomed.

I'd say sorority for the bigger and hold fire on the male until you get the smaller tank sorted.

However, have a look around and see what takes your fancy; see which you like the best.

I have decided to do a sorority tank. It will be 5-6 females and a banjo cat. I had to move my banjo from my hex today because they started to beat him up in there.....hopefully he lives. Would you put anything else in the tank as far as a bottom feeder or will the banjo be sufficient enough on its own?
