If you get ghost shrimp, be aware that your betta may eat them. It's happened before. The shrimp disappear and at the same time the betta gets fatter and fatter . . . Barbs need to be in schools of at least 6 in a 20g or they will nip the heck out of everyone. Danios are too hyper and will stress a betta. I like cory cats because they hang out on the bottom and don't bother the betta so he won't bother them (although he will most likely eat their food until he gets huge). Otocinclus catfish are great too. They only get about 1 1/2 or 2 inches.

Either ideas are great. Petsmart def. had Cories. I'm not sure about Otos though.

I will see, when I am there, if they have one to "rescue" and if they do, I'll devide the tank later. I'll keep him in my one-gallon quarantine tank to start with while I treat him

Please please please if you decide to get any type of tropical fish, do a simple google search of them first and see what the MINIMAL GROUP size if for that fish! Danios need 6+ as well as some of the others that were posted. Not bringing home the right amount for a group is no better than sticking a betta in a 0.5g tank :( Good Luck!!

Yeah...looks like a 10 gallon is the wrong size for adding any fish XP I will probably wait a few weeks until after school has started and split the tank into two with other bettas...probably male since there won't be room for a sorority.

What would be epic is have a 20 gallon tank split in 3 (5/10/5) with two males and a sorority XP but thats just wishful thinking. Would certainly keep the males active!

:D yeaahh I wouldn't personally separate a tank with males and females- just in case someone were to jump over or find a way through the divider ><

Yeah, quite true, we don't want the fighting, or something else,.that would ensue.
