Yay 10 gallon! Fishy Friends?

I have Mr. Tiberius in his 10 gal with 3 ADF. Are there any fishy friends I could add in? No shrimp or cories please, or platies and neons. I already have these guys in a 50 gal. Any ideas? Has anyone had white clouds, wait they are coldwater huh? Thanks so much!

White Clouds arent exactly a cold water fish but do thrive in water the ranges from 60 to 72 degrees fahrenheit. Ive read that haveing them in a tank that is around 78 may shorten there life and a possibility that it can cause health issues.

Black Phantom Tetras (: love those little buggers, and they love my betta lol. A good 5 or 7 would be awesome. I had 5 in mine, but 1 died (runt) and the remaining 4 are doin great with my betta and julii cories.

What about harlequin rasboras? I heard they are very picky with water quality, but also heard they are hardy...

you cuold maybe try shrimp or snails. your betta might eat the shrimp, but maybe not. snails help a lot with cleaning the algae, but the do put out waste.

I got 5 of them for $5 at petco lol. They are about $1.50 each, very hardy too. They eat my betta flakes (the reason I went back to the flakes was cause they eat whatever he misses). They will also eat a whole hikari betta pellet, and bloodworms. They eat lots of stuff.

They are pretty entertaining too, I have 1 male and 3 females. Females are kinda red like a serpae tetra, while males are silvery with the phantom eye on the side. They do a sort of courtship thing too between the male and a female, or if you have 2-3 males they will sort of "play fight" I have heard, and try to win over the females lol. They get about 1.25 - 1.50"

I don't think they spawn/breed unless the conditions are just right. I also like Von Rio Flame Tetras :) they are kinda the same, but their reddish orange color might get your betta angry at them lol.
