Question 40 liter stocking?

I was thinking of getting some fish for Draven's tank, it's 40 liters(10 gallons) with lot's of places to hide.
Draven is a pretty chilled out fish who enjoys chilling and surfing in his filter, there are some pond snails in there with him that came with the plants I got him(still working of cleaning them out) and he doesn't even bother with them.
So some ideas on what to get to put in the tank would be cool and if they are ok with eating the same pellets as him I'll be a happy mummy :)
Thank you

Do you know what kind of parameters your tap water (assuming you are using tap water) has?

You could try a small school of ember tetras (around 4-6). They do not grow very big, but do prefer softer water from what I have read. Another option is one of the small native blue-eye (pesudomugil) species. However, their darting movements and sparring between males may encourage a betta to attack.

Otherwise, it does depend on your male's temperament. Some male bettas are extremely aggressive to anything, while others are a lot more placid.

Also, the smaller schooling fish may need a smaller pellet or for it to be crushed up first as they only have small mouths.
