Recommended tankmate?

I have a male Betta in a 10 gallon aquarium with 2 African Dwarf Frogs, and it just looks empty. The frogs hide all day, so most of the time, it looks like he is in there alone.

I'd like to put something else in there with him, any thoughts?

Corydoras catfish are not only betta friendly, but also active and fun to watch. If you were considering fish as your next addition, these guys definitely have my vote. People also try tetras and guppies or something. The smaller, more tightly-knit schoolers.

Isn't it best to have more than one cory at a time? Is there room in there for 2 or 3 corys?

Cories are schooling fish and need to be in groups of no less than 4.

I put some albino cories in there. The betta huffed about it for the first couple minutes, and then he calmed down. Looks like he'll be ok with them. :D
