Suggest other fish for my Optimus..

Hi guys, my betta is happy now and thanks to all who helped me when he was sick.. Optimus is now happy n swimming around in his 3gal tank with nice hiding places..

now here is the question, i have a 10gal with a comet goldfish and an oranda.. both r overgrowing the tank and i am getting a new one. I got the fishes when they were small. So i am thinking of putting my Betta in the 10gal. i dont want it to look empty, though it has lots of decorations n plants. Can u suggest other fish/shrimp to place along with him?

thank you

By the way comets can get a foot long so I suggest a tank of at least 75 galloms. I don't think they should ever be in a ten gallon with a goldfish. That is very overcrowded.

Cherry or Ghost shrimp, are always fun. Maybe some cories, or otos, would be good for you too!

Yeah comets are similar to koi in that they both would do better in a large set up like a pond.
