For a 10? Get about 5-6 Glowlight Tetra, NOT the GloFish though; they're genetically engineered and don't even keep their color. But Glowlight's are really good with Betta's and peaceful and still look pretty ^_^ they are right fine in 80 degree's too.

Wow. Thank you for the suggestion. Glowlight tetra it is. (:

EDIT: Isn't there minimum tank size 15 gallons? Also I saw that they get nippy in smaller groups, so would 8-10 be better? Again, aq advisor says I can overcrowd the tank with 20!!! lol

For Glowlights? No, the min is 10 gallons. I think 8-10 is a really good group number to go with! And they really only get nippy if you have like less than 5 in there but otherwise it's nippy toward each other and not other fish like your Betta. So he's safe from them

I find it weird that aqadvisor is saying you can put 20 of them in there, are you adding in your Betta? Also, what are you putting in there for your filtration system?

Ah okay, yeah definitely wouldn't go with 20 haha. 8-10 is definitely a good number then! Sounds like a plan ^_^

(: Thank you soo much. (: (: Is therea good bottom feeder for a 10 gallon tank that doesn't school, isn't a shrimp and isn't a loach (my mom freaks at anything that looks like a snake lol)

EDIT: That is compatible with bettas and glowlight tetras?? Probably not any, but worth a try (:

O.O Could I have a malaysian trumpet snail with them???? I read about them and I love everything about them especially because they eat fish waste too right? lol. except how they reproduce very quickly. Could I use lettuce to keep the population under control and bring them to the store???

EDIT: I like corys more than snails now since I've read many people with snail problems, would 1-2 julii corys be okay? The ones at my LFS do NOT school at all for some reason, they keep their distance (10 sq inches apart each)

EDIT: NVM about the corys, I only didn't want snails because of overpopulation, maybe a few nerite snails?

Nerites would be a possiblity. But also remember snails have a pretty big bioload because they poop so much. Although I have heard that Nerites produce less waste... (correct me if I'm wrong) :p
