What can live in a 10 gallon tank or smaller?

I have a ten gallon tank sitting around and I want to know what kinds of animals can live in it, fish or not. So any of you experts on any animal please chime in!

5G - 1 betta: orange dalmatian VT male "Ty"
29G - 1 orange fantail goldfish "Goldeen"

Betta!

Oh, sorry. ;p

For fish aspect, never liked stocking 10s. Other than a female sorority, or a male with a snail... I too have a 10 just sitting there.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

Betta?! That sounds like an interesting animal! What is it?! ;P

I'm not even really interested in fish for it anyway....I was thinking more "finless friends" lol. But if someone wanted to share about a fish that is welcome too :)

Oh lol hahaha
yes a mouse or a hampster or gerbil could definitely work!
Probably a rat as well.

definitely a corn snake or two, a chamelion maybe?

Chamelions need a lot more space than you realize ;D (coming from someone who wanted one haha). Cornsnakes don't tend to take up much space. Get one who loves being handled, get a hidey hole, water dish, and...yeah. And a lid that the snake CANNOT push off. Trust me. They are sneaker buggers.

My friend has 3 of the smaller breeds of Kulii Loaches and a few Dannios and she loves it!

Bettas are neat little guys. A colorful little fish that is full of personality. You can have 1 male or several females.

There are hampsters, guinipigs, and various rotens. a few reptiles. Honestly, I would go with an aquatic species. Less messy and stinky as well as easier care IMO.
