10 gallon fishes

I'm stocking a 10 gallon aquarium for my local library. We already have a female betta, but since a lot of kids are going to be looking at it we will need to put in some more fish. I need species suitable for a 10 gallon that are hardy, peaceful, easy to feed, and active. Any suggestions?

I would do some smaller corydoras. Some dwarf varities and maybe pandas?

You could add 4 or 5 female bettas of all different colors. Kids might like that more than some of the other tropical fish since bettas are so responsive to humans.

I'm not too keen on doing a sorority, what about a shoal of honey gouramis?

Is it going to have just the lone female in it? I'd build all around her.

Gouramis and bettas can't live together, they're part of the same family/genus/ or whatever you call it. I agree with the sorority or small cory idea. ^

I'm thinking they may be able to do some guppies. I just don't know if male or females would be better with a female betta. I know my Bowser does pretty well with the boys in the 10.

I had harlequin rasboras with my betta. Very active, yet very peaceful. They never had a conflict. However, my betta wasn't a super aggressive type.

Harlequins sound interesting, I was thinking a shoal of Cories or tetra. Those pretty are pretty much the only tank mates for Bettas in a 10 gallon. What do you feed your tetra?
