Arrow 10 gallon community...?

I've been wondering about how many fish I can put in my aquarium. I have a 10 gallon tetra aquarium.

I have a halfmoon male betta, who seems really nice. He doesn't seem very aggressive. I want to put some neon tetras in and maybe a butterfly pleco. What else can be in there?

Avoid the Plecos, they get way too large for a 10 gallon. As far as algae eaters, Otos and Cories are a good match.
As far as the other fish, it all depends on your Betta's personality.

Cories are not algae eaters, They will eat uneaten food, but no algae. Ottos have to have algae in the tank, and a lot of it, because some will not eat anything else but that.

I like the cories with the stripe across their eye. I think it's cute. I want to get cories eventually.

Yes, panda cories are great. I think they are one of the cuter cories too! :)

My Otos like zucchini.

I just remembered that the Cories eat the uneaten food. Which in my Betta's tanks, would never have any.

Yeah if you get cories make sure you put food in there that will sink(if you put pellets in and dip your finger in the water above them they will sink). Remember they school so get 3+ cories, 1 or 2 will not work!
