Emperor tetra need larger tanks than 10 gallons, and things like celestial danios should really be in a species only tank. ;)

Ember, not emperor tetras:)

I've heard mix thoughts on the celestial danios, but I'm thinking that the species only would probably be the best way. So yeah, ignore that one!

The best way to help is to be forgiving. People aren't made with a book of ultimate information in their head. We need to inform, not insult; give advice, not lectures; and realize we're all human and we all make mistakes

I have had very good success putting neon tetra's with bettas. I had a crowntail male, 6 neon tetras, 3 Otoclinus affins and 2 Dario dario in a 10 gallon living peacefully for a while. The same group of neons are now in my sorority and the girls completely ignore them.

I would never get a fish that will get too big for the 10g with the betta, hence why I am posting on here to get others opinions.

I should ave said this before hand but here it is now. You have to be careful with neon tetra. I tested my bettas temperment first with a few ghost shrimp. After a few weeks of them being alive i then trusted him enough to try the neons. Some bettas however see neons as nothing more then a colorful snack. As of right now i have three male bettas i wouldnt put anything else in with. they constantly flare at anythign that moves and one was in with an angel fish for a little while. The anglefish was bigger then him and got bullied so much it wouldnt move out of the corner. I had to find a different temporary tank (now with my sorority where he is the boss until i rehome him in the next few days) for him.

Philnominal - Really? Ugh thanks for the tip. I think then maybe I'll look up glow light tetra and then after reading about them see if they will work out in the tank. Thank you for letting me know!

I think I'll also look up what AquaKai suggested, ember tetra and see if they'll do well with Kudo.

Just be sure you have soft acidic water, or else those embers will be clear, not red.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
