Thanks for all the info I really appreciate it. What I was thinking was keeping the beta for now in the tank. Was planning on small group of neons (3/4). Do u like neons over tetras? Plus was thinking of Cory but wife wants shrimp. Not that I mind shrimp but I've read that they can really get out of control. So was kinda backing off that idea.

Lol
Guppies r easier to breed but neon tetras r more interesting (my opinion) . The shrimp will only eat out of hand if u have a sponge filter

Also, guppies r more expensive and neons will grow bigger and live longer

Since shrimp babies r very tiny, a hob filter will suck them up and they r gone. So if u want to breed shrimp, get a sponge filter.

The guppies will be fine as well cuz they grow quite small. U may be able to fit snails in.
What type of substrate do u have? Sand or gravel?
A mystery snail may fit
Malaysian trumpets r another choice cuz they r small

We have gravel and 3 live plants (didn't know if that would come into play or not).

Btw what is a hob filter? We do have a filter on the intake of filter. Wife was afraid that since we will b adding small fish they would get sucked up. 😏
