Tankmate Question

So Ive had ADF, snails and cardinal tetra in the tank. Im wondering what other kinds of fish besides tetra can be with a male betta? I feel most comfortable asking here because you guys are knowledgable and wont steer me wrong unlike the petstores who just want to make a sale.

No long finned fish or colorful fish some bettas are less aggressive than others so see how aggressive yours is.

You could add 2 or more Cory Catfish or some Zebra Danios.

Zebra danios need more space to swim than a ten gallon will give (they are wild). cories are a good idea, but in the small 10 gallon tank, i 'd suggest you get 4-6 pygmy cories. Them, your snail, and the betta would make a good tank.

Alternatively, you could get otos, but I don't know much about them.

Even though 10 gallons is a bigger tank than a lot of the ones you see on the betta forum or with betta keepers, it's still kind of small for a lot of fish you might like to have.

I would suggest invertebrates like shrimp or other snails.

Thanks everyone. I can't have shrimp because Kudo likes to eat them. I think I will look into pygmy cories!

katrina89 - I think Kitty Whiskers mentioned them, I dont know too much about that type either, would they be too active and stress out my betta?
