10 gallon tank mates?

I currently have one betta in a 5 gallon tank. I am wanting to set up a shrimp tank and plan to use a 5 gallon but I recently found out I cant buy the kit I had previously bought. I was thinking this may be a nice opprotunity to upgrade my betta to a 10 gallon tank.

If I do upgrade him to a 10 gallon tank I was thinking of getting 5 neon tetras for tank mates (To mimic my other tank). According to AqAdvisor that would put me at 62% capacity. Is there anythign else I could put in with them? What do you recommend? Preferably actual fish and not snails.

I was actually considering corys. They need to be in groups of 4 right?

Other good choices are shrimp, PYGMY corycats, and neons

Danios are very active fish and need at least a 20 gallon.

Otocinclus would be good. They're great for the algae and they're pretty fun to watch!

Some ADF's are good too--about 2, but you'd have to take out your male and rearrange things then put the frogs in first so there are no territorial issues.

I am not sure if Alfie would tolerate ADFs He never minded the ghost shrimp I had with him until they swimmed to the top of the tank where he spends most of his time and then he killed them all. I am afriad he would end up chaising teh ADFs and not let them get any air :-S
