Talking Empty 10 Gallon!

So my 14 gallon is fully cycled and I moved my female, zebra danios and cories into that which leaves me with a cycled empty 10 gallon. :D

I can't decide whether to make a community, give it all to Chance because he's done so well with his treatment (his popeye is completely gone and he's starting to regrow his fins!), or split it with Chance and get another betta.

Any opinions?
If community which fish should i add?

I would either split it with Chance and a new betta or do a female sorority.:)

I would do a sorority, but I've maxed out the space I can give to fish in my room, so if it didn't work out I wouldn't know where to put them! And with the chance of it not working out, I don't think I really want to do one.

Hmmm, well a neighbor of mine has different kinds of tetras in a 29 gallon but she only has about 10-12 in her aquarium. They're very pretty.

I personally would give the whole thing to Chance. Down the road if you want, there's always the option to divide for another Betta or add some community fish.

Just my .02

Those were my thoughts exactly. He's comfortably living now in his own 10 gallon. :D

Agreed! give it to chance for the time being, if you see a fish that calls out to you, get him/her!

I have a rosy red minnow and a dalmation mollie in with Desmond in a 10 gal. they all live in peace and harmony! u could always add one or 2 buddies!

I agree about giving it to Chance. And then there's always the option of dividing it down the road. I did that with my 10 gal a while ago.
