Question What could go in a ten gallon with a King?

Hi guys, been away for awhile, just got super busy with life! ANyway, back with a King daughter had a death in her ten gallon, so we now have a cleaned, cycled ten with nothing in it but her remaining fish, 3 red eye tetras and a small siamese algae eater. I was thinking about putting a King in there, do you think they would do ok? Or does a King need to be totally alone? Are there any tankmates suitable for a King in a ten gallon? Thanks!!!

It depends on the betta. Most mature male bettas seem to prefer to live alone and be the king of their tank. A zebra nerite snail would probably be a good tankmate for a king, but it is possible that he might bite of the snail's antennae. A group of 3-5 neon tetras might work, but it is possible that they might become betta food if the betta can fit them in his mouth.

I personally would suggest a second setup just for him if you're really interested in getting a King, and instead adding 2-3 more Red-Eye Tetras to your current setup so they have a nice little school.
