tank mates or alone

I have my betta in a 10 gallon tank by himself. Do they prefer being alone or would something else in his tank?

Depends on the fish, most like to be alone, some tolerate company, while a rare few enjoy it. I say a snail is a good starter friend though if you want to try. If you have live plants it's even better as the snail can eat off the dead parts of the plant and keep algae under control. Nerits are a good choice as they can't breed in freshwater and need brackish for eggs to hatch.

I wouldn't move to them first though, if a betta dislikes company shrimp are easy to kill and tetra's easy to chase until they are too stressed out. Snails just go in their shells.
