Stocking a 10 gallon tank

For my birthday I am getting a new 10 gallon tank for my room! I have looked on the internet for how to stock a ten gallon tank I know you can put a betta in but I want too know if you can put anything else in a 10 gallon because I already have 3 bettas!

Maybe three guppies or some neon tetras would add color!!

5 x Celestial Pearl Danio, 3 to 5 Pygmy Cory, and a nice Nerite snail would be my suggestion.

This is a good selection. I might also recommend 6-7 Emerald Eye Rasboras (Brevibora dorsiocellata), instead of the CPDs.

Have fun!

From what I know, a 10 gallon severely limits you on what you can keep. Guppies would be a bad choice I think, because a Betta male can mistake a guppy for another Betta.

A couple of Neon Tetras, but they can get nippy and harass your Betta fish. I've had problems with mine. Observe them and remove the nippy ones, maybe.

Some white clouds maybe. Platties too.

Yep, I also agree with this recommendation

I'd up the celestial pearl danios to at least 8 and get 6 Pygmy corys. I prefer habrosus Corys to Pygmys though- Habrosus is just a different type of dwarf corydora.

Badis are supposed to be neat, diet is a little more work than some but you can have quite a few in a ten gallon
