Tankmate for my betta

Hello, I'm interested in getting a tankmate/friend for my Male Betta.

Tank: 10 Gallon, Hooded light, Aquaclear filter, Eheim Jager filter, some decor, and gravel.

So what kind/type of fishes can I put in with him that will have no problem and not hard to take care (I'm a beginner)? I would like to have a fish that will make my room awesome and beautiful, yet easy to take care.

Thanks!

Hmmm... is there a heater in the tank? If there is not, you will need to get one before anything else. Also, why are there 2 filters? And by "some decor, do you mean two or three plastic plants or more like a bunch of plants and driftwood? It'll help the members here know which kind of fish would be best. Thanks!!:)

I just added some neon tetras to mine. They're schooling fish, so you need at least 6. My Petsmart has them for $1 right now. Feed them tropical flakes. :)

Is a 10 Gallon aquarium okay for them and 1 male betta?

Thanks!

What type of AquaClear do you have? The tank is cycled too, right?
Otherwise, I think you should get some more decorations and possibly some live plants. You want the Neons to be able to hide from your Betta. You'll need to QT them in another tank so you'll have to think about that.. I suggest Pygmy Cories. They're catfish, but they need sand because of their barbels. :(

Yes, they definitely need lots of spaces to hide from your betta. I was going to suggest cories too, but you have gravel. :(
