Betta compatability ina 10 gallon

I'm looking to put my Betta in a 10 gallon aquarium with 2-3 other fish. The Betta is a male as far as I know, the average kind that comes in bowls from Petco. I'm looking to put a Gold Algae Eater, Angelfish of some sort, a miniature Plecco and snail in this tank with the Betta. Would they get along? Thanks :)

Agelfish: BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD. Long fins make the betta want to attack the angel.

Pleco: get's WAY to big for a ten gallon.


Snail: requires certain water that can give bettas fin rot and bacterial infections.

I was told this particular brand of Plecco shouldn't get much longer than my index finger. Would the Gold Algae Eater work?

I'm not sure about the golden algae eater but some ottos could work or you could try some cories. I am setting up a ten gallon soon to and am planning on stocking it with 1 betta and 4 or 5 cories

I would not reccomend Algea Eaters, when they get bigger not only do they stop eating algae, but they get very aggressive. My dad and I learned that the hard way. :T

Like already mentioned, Angelfish have long fins that the betta will attack. Not to mention Angelfish need bigger tanks (I think at least 25 gal if I remember correctly).

I don't know much about Plecos. My dad has one his 75 gal and it is huge. Way too big for a 10 gal.

cories are good, very good...snails...are nice but i dont know too much about their care. i know some males are good with tank mates and some arnt. it depends on his personality. dont even try anything big or beautiful and flashy.
