Betta and zebra danios ?????

MY boys now have a 10 gal that is not divided, but I need to put a few danios in with one of the boys. Since the danios are not very flashy I am hoping all will go well...What do you all think?

Danios are too active for a ten gallon.

People have used Zebra Danios as tank mates but I say no and here is my reason behind it. Danios like cooler water temps about 68-73 degrees. Betta's are tropical fish and need water temps between 78-82. If you decide to try it I would have a cycled back up tank in place in case things go wrong.

I have to try something. The danios has been fine in my tank for a yr and I have no where else to put my betta, Cisco. He needed more room. The only other tank I have right now is my goldfish tank . I am just going to wing it. I don't want to put Cisco in the little tank again.
