Tank mates female betta

So I have a 10 gallon tank that is going to be heavily planted with a snail and female betta who shows little aggression to tank mates. In fact this is her first three hours with the snail and she has completely ignored it. So what would be some good tank mates for her. Since it is female I am not concerned about fin nippers.

Hm... Maybe a few endlers livebearers? I have a few in my community tank and they're fun little buggers. I know guppy-type fish are generally not good choices with males, but no idea about keeping them with females.

You could try to start a female betta sorority! There are nice stickies on here about that. I've also tried neon tetras and they got along wonderfully.

I have considered a sorority, just haven't found more females I like yet. Guppies and tertra's sound cool. How many can you keep in a 10 gallon.

I want to say 5-6 guppies if they're the only ones in the tank, but it could be more (before I upgraded to a 15 gallon, I think I had 7 in my moderately planted 10 gallon and it was starting to look a bit crowded to me) - you may be able to have that number in with the female. Endlers, a close relative, are pretty small, so you could keep more of them than actual guppies.

Don't need Cories since I have a snail and honestly snails are the best cleaners around so I hear. Plus you need them schooled and 10 gallons is too small to keep a proper number even of pygmies.

PYGMY cories are not bottom feeders. They are considered Mid water swimmers. Neons are good too.

They are considered bottom dwellers actually and would compete with my snail.

They spend more time in the middle. But Neons work.
