Question Is this okay for a 10 gallon?

Hey guys! I'm planning my 10 gallon tank and these were the fish I wanted to add. Just want your opinion.

Well I had a similar "kind of" community tank like yours with 4 cories and 1 Betta. The Betta got very territorial and I had to divide my 10 gallon afterwards. Just giving you a heads up on that since its a possibility and has happened to me. It sounds Ok to me might wanna only keep 1 frog That's my opinion.

One other thing Betta's will go for everyone's food so there can also be a chance of over feeding it.

Those are my only concerns Hope some more Experienced people can give their opinions later on today since I do not know much about tetras and the frogs.

Sounds nice but that plan is overstocked for a 10 gallon tank I would think so lets allow others who deal with this issue weight in on what they think. Just by guessing I would say only one frog and maybe 4 little fish along with a Betta is all I would add to a 10 gallon and maybe even less. Good luck with your plans !

gn3ranger - Thanks for such a quick response! I'll definitely keep an eye on 'em if I end up getting corys. And I've also heard about the feeding, so I'd also make sure he wouldn't get over-fed. Thanks for the heads up.

Perseusmom - So maybe I should chose EITHER tetras or corys? I'll definitely keep that in mind when planning, thanks!

Really? Chibi has some in his tank and they've been there for a month with no problem. I'll keep it in mind though, thanks! :)

Neons should have at least 8 for a school for them to feel safe. 4 is minimum to some, but why don't keep most of our bettas at the minimum either. I would not do cories and just get a bunch more neons, like 5 or more. The ADFs have bad eye sight and feeding them with a betta is hard. They are much better to be in an ADF only tank so they don't have hard times getting food.

Do you have sand in the tank? Cories require sand.

Ah, I did not know they needed sand! This is just a plan for a tank I am getting soon, but wanted everyone's opinions and information first. I don't have the tank yet, so I can still get different substrate and what-not. :) (And I've read up on the cycle and know how long it takes.) So maybe just do a bunch of tetras and a betta? Are there any other type of fish that I could put in with a betta instead of corys or tetras?
