I have a red veil-tailed male Betta.
He's all alone, but his tank is being a pain (The light has just given out, and the filter broke), so I'm moving him to a 10 gallon this weekend because I have an unused filter for a 10 gallon.
I want to get him a buddy, because I don't like leaving him all alone.
He's having some issues with fin rot and popeye right now, but I'm working on helping him get better, and once he is I'd like to get him a friend or some friends (And I'm waiting at least a week after I'm positive he's better to even consider buying a tank-mate).
I'd prefer a fish, because we've had problems with snails in the past and I'd rather not have to deal with them.
So what fish would be best in a 10 gallon?
We have some guppies and such, but I don't want to move any of them over to my Betta's tank, because we've got a TON of guppies, the males are actually neon colors now because of how much breeding has happened and the weird genes it's created, and I just don't want to deal with guppies that breed all the time.
Thank you :)
