I would not try this with active fish like the zebra danio, and BTW a 10g is not sufficient space for these anyway. But there are many "nano" type fish, most require soft water and are in the Cyprinids section in our profiles.
I had a 10g planted with Boraras brigittae (9), Corydoras pygmaeus (7), a couple shrimp, and a Dwarf Puffer. No filter, no light (in front of a south window). Worked fine, sort-of, but I eventually added a sponge filter and light. But my point is that the fish were fine.
Yea I want the betta. I figured I didn't need a filter but a small one would only make things better. Thanks a lot Byron Posted via Mobile Device
