10 gallon stocking with betta

So I have a cycled 10 gallon tank with fake plants and fine gravel substrate and was looking for stocking ideas. I know I want a male or female betta in there but I was hoping to add a school of small tetras or maybe a few small corydoras? Any specific ideas on this?

Erm, I wouldn't reccomend that. It seems that it's a personality thing- simetimes it works, and sometimes the betta slurps the neon up like spaghetti.

I would say you're pretty limited.... A school of tetras could work, but only if their body is wide/tall. Maybe ember tetras or some kind of rasbora?
Wait, no, they can nip fins.

Probably have to limit yourself to bottom feeders... although a dwarf frog could work.

Well what kind of corydoras would work best? Ive had difficulty finding anything other than pandas and peppered varieties around here

Well with cories you definately want to keep them in groups...

Pygmy cories are probably a bit too small... Might be tempting if the betta decided it was hungry.

Not really sure... You can check the fish profiles though.
I have to get going. sorry.

I think most corydoras species would be ok. You could go for a group of 6-8 of them and the betta. Or, you could have the betta, 3-4 corydoras and a few other small fish. Maybe a trio of cherry barbs (two female one male)?
