Can I put more in my 10 gallon?

I have a 10 gallon tank with 1 male Betta, 2 ADF's, and 3 White Clouds(larger ones). I was wondering if I could put 5 Tetras in here(rummy-nose) or would that be too much? What would you recommend? I am also planning on putting one Amano Shrimp in down the road.
Thanks--PWF

I think thats a little much.. you need 1 gallon of water per inch of fish. So male bettas are usually about 2 inches, AFD's are about an inch, WCs about an inch... thats 8 gallons already used...plus some of your space is taken up by plants and gravel so I'd say you really have at least 9 gallons worth of space used.

Okay, thanks! Do you think it would be okay to put one shrimp in?

Yep!! That'd be OK. Shrimp have barley any bioload, so they don't make much difference when it comes to over stocking! I'd get two, they like company. ;)
