Stocking options

Hi,
I am thinking about adding something new to my tank and would like some thoughts. I have a 10 gallon with a beta and a clown pleco. Any thoughts of what i could add with personality and color?
Thanks.

You should remove the clown pleco and replace it with otocinclus.

Yeah, pleco's are waste machines that are usually recommended for larger tanks (preferably 30+ gallons) where the water volume is greater. Bettas are extremely hit-or-miss when it comes to community tanks, so you could try adding a small schooling fish (ember tetras, green neon tetras, chili rasboras) or small shoal of pygmy corys (corydoras habrosus, hastatus, pygmaeus). If the betta does not react well you just need to have a back up plan is all.
