10 gallon stocking plans

Hey everyone I have been extremely annoying in the past about a larger tank. But I have actually decided on setting up a 10 gallon! And this is my stocking plans. If this is too crowded I would appreciate any other suggestions

1 female betta
3-4 corys
1 apple snail
3-4 platys
Ok?

Nope, too crowded :P Either 1 female betta and the cories, or 1 female betta and the platies. Apple snails are big and produce alot of waste, so to be on the safe side I wouldnt add one with either of the stocking plans I mentioned. It would have to be 1 female betta and an apple snail. So you have three choices :D

Yeah actually this isn't my original plan. I saw this while researching and I was like no way!! Probably not gettin' the snail. So what fish would you suggest?

Hm... it depends on your preference. Cories are mostly bottom and mid-tank dwellers, and Platies are middle-top dwellers I think, so it depends on the look you want for your tank. You could also forget about any other fish and get 5-6 females bettas for your 10g, with nothing else in the tank but the females. That's an option too. :)

Or neon tetra's. They're really peaceful.

They are mostly peaceful, they can be nippy, but they wouldnt be able to survive the cycling process at all. They are like the most sensitive fish ever. I got 6 for a 14g when I didnt know about cycling, and not one of them made it after a couple months. :/ Not a beginner fish, the really need a cycled tank with strict water changes.

Neons also need acidic water, the lack of which is usually why they die... For a beginner, either the platies or the cories would be best. Depending on your female betta experience, starting a sorority could be a mess. They don't always get along so you would need places to keep any of the girls who just refused to live quietly with the others. You are planning to cycle your tank right?

Yes I am,but I'm using Stability by seachem. They say you can do a fish-in method while cycling with Stability,but I'm not taking the chance. I have decided on cory cat's. I have seen them at LFS's and they awesome! And could I have cherry shrimp in there also?

I don't know about the cherry shrimp... Cory are pretty active and spend most of the time on the bottom where the shrimp would be and could injure them.
