Max, Renamed Phin, and his buddies... New pics, More fish

I've always wanted an aquarium full of little fish... I've finally got it!

Same betta as before, Max. I just renamed him Phin. Here is everything I have:

1 betta
1 cory cat
3 mickey mouse platies
4 zebra danios
4 neon tetras

I was worried that my betta wouldn't get along with them but everyone seems to be happy other than the cory cat who sits in the corner sometimes (I think I have to get another green cory cat so she'll be happy). The betta acts like he doesn't even notice the other fish and he's very relaxed towards the other fish. My girlfriend named some of the fish so I'll tell you their names below...

The whole tank:

My betta, Phin. He's changed a little bit of colors since I got him. He's so pretty, everyone who comes over and sees him says how pretty he is.

Nala, a cory cat. She needs a friend.

Firecracker, a mickey mouse platies. They call them a mickey mouse because you can see mickey mouse in their tails.

Mickey or "Mick", another mickey mouse platies.

Here's BigSpec, a variatus or something mickey platies.

And the zebra danios and neon tetras are scattered throughout the pictures.

Those are my fish!

I eventually want to get a couple more plants, a castle or something, and maybe another platies or two, another cory and a few more neon tetras (I can't even see them they're so small lol). Seems like a lot of fish but it really isn't. I'm just so glad everyone gets along!

Thanks for looking!

Very nice tank! what size is it? I have always wanted a little community tank like that but only have 5 gallon tanks. I was thinking about getting a 30 gallon and doing something like that.

My tank is only a 10 gallon and everyone is happy. They'll be even more happy when I get a few more plants and decorations for them to hide in. No one seems too crowded. If I get any more fish I might get ride of a couple zebra danios (take them back to the pet store).

You could keep 5 neon tetras in your 5 gallon I bet with no problem. People say they don't like neon tetras, blah blah. My betta has 10+ buddies and doesn't have a problem with anyone.

Very nice tank, the cory certainly needs a friend preferably two. They are very social fish and like groups of 3 or more. Get the same type too. I kept a tank once with 4 different types of cory's and they always stayed apart segregated to their own kind.
