Betta tank mates in a ten gallon?

I have a beautiful male double tail half moon betta. I want to upgrade him to a 10 gallon tank with some tank mates. I was looking for common tank mates that I could buy at petco or petsmart. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Pygmy cories are a good choice. They need groups of +6, you could keep 7-8. They absolutely need a sand bottom.
Bronze/albino cories are larger and could do well on smooth gravel, but all cories prefer sand bottoms.
Another bottom dwelling sand lover are kuhli loaches, they like soft water. You could do about 6 in your 10 gallon.
I like bottom dwellers since they even out the tank, and aren't as annoying to a betta. :)
