Extra tank! (uh oh!)

I recently upgraded my male to a 10 gallon.

I have this tank- http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hawkeye-Aq...-Pets/13448744 - that I'm not using right now. While I would love to try to put a female betta in there, I feel like she'd be jealous of Bettasaur's 10 gallon & inevitably I'd have to upgrade her to a 10 gallon. (I'm an idiot, I know.) Is there a smaller fish that I can put in there? I'm a fish newbie, so keep that in mind!! :) Thanks in advance!!!

that aquarium is pretty small, so yes, i would only put a betta. You MIGHT be able to have 3 white cloud mountain minnows in there, but you would really have to pick up the matinence. These fish are coldwater.

Thanks! I'll probably end up putting plants in that one with some snails or something. :)

Haha, Yeah...I'd feel bad for her though. I know how cramped Bettasaurus was in there, but he has some seriously ridiculous finnage.... I might go see what kind of females they have at my LFS tomorrow & talk to them about the shrimp. They always have some gorgeous bettas on Friday because it's their new shipment day!
