Arrow Betta Friends!!

Hey!!! I have a 10 gallon tank but only my cute Betta Lawrence is living there! I'm sure it would look much nicer with some more fish... I was thinking about a sucker fish or maybe some neon tetras... Anyone out there have any thing to say about this? Will Lawrence be ok with these guys or are there any other fish I could put in??? THANKS SO MUCH!!! PLEASE REPLY!!!

I've seen people put a small group of neon tetras (5 or 6) in a 10 gallon with a betta. However, neon tetras like to be in larger groups (6+) and enjoy horizontal space. If your betta is nice to companions you can try some shrimp or 3-4 corydoras. If you like snails you can add a Nerite snail or two. You can try going to aqadvisor.com and try different stocking combinations all while making sure you don't over stock your tank.

Little Lawrence is just the cutest thing! He is a half sun... His tail is red, his body white with red speckles on his forehead, and this cute vertical green stripe near the end of his body!! He loves to EAT EAT EAT!!! lol Sometimes, I think he is still growing
