10 gallon ideas. Yes, another tank.

Ok, im definitely getting ambitious here. so far i have 25 gallon, a 20 gallon, a 29 gallon, a betta tank, and hopefully a 40 breeder in december. not to mention the QT tanks and fry/breeding tank. but i figured a 10 gallon for my parents' anniversary wouldnt hurt. or maybe its just my excuse for another tank. any stocking ideas? never kept a 10 gallon community before. im thinking a beta as a centerpiece, then a loose school of 3 fish, and a shrimp. not sure if theres any more room. any suggestions for the school of 3?

Male Endler's? I don't know how well that would go down with the Betta, but you could definitely do 3-6 of them in there.

I think there's a good chance the betta would eat the shrimp.

Of course it really depends on the personality of the individual betta, but you won't really know it wouldn't work until after the shrimp is already eaten.

Maybe male endlers and shrimp?
