community tank

i went to the pet store yesterday to pick up a new betta (satoshi) just so happens i asked about what fish would be compatible with him and they told me:

1.ghost shirmp (but betta may eat them)
2.tetras
3.platies
4. guppies but not the fancy tail ones since the fancy tail ones can make the betta think it's another male
5. african dwarf frog not clawed since ACFs will get big enough to eat the betta

but they said i would need a lot more plants to make the fish feel safe.

what size tank do you have? I wouldn't add thing in less than a 5g but some people add ADFs or ghost shrimp... snails are also an option! there are a lot of other kinds of shrimp like red cherry shrimp!!

That's decent advice. For tetras I would say stick with the smaller guys like neons and glolights, big tetras can be a bit too swift and nippy for a betta. some other guys that can go with them:

Rasboras
Cory Catfish
Otocinclus Catfish
Kuhli loaches

Yes. Good advice. Tank size is a factor. I used to keep a male in a 10 with three kuhli loaches and two oto cats.

Sorry i forgot to mention, it's a 10 gallon it's temp is at currently 78 degrees if that helps. I have ghost shrimp in a 5 gallon tank so i could add a few of those.
