Stocking a new 10 gallon

I just found a great deal on a tank for 10 bucks. I know for sure I want a male half-moon betta and possibly a largish shrimp species any suggestions of shrimp are appreciated. Also what would be a type of schooling fish I can possibly house in this tank and the filtration is a tetra whisper 20i

I keep my betta with neons but i know there are people that don't have luck with this. I think it depends on how aggressive your betta is.

Ember tetra are another species that I've heard people have been lucky and able to keep betta with, but it's really on a case-by-case basis. Some betta are just too aggressive, and some tetra are just too nippy. A decent amount of planting and some floating plants will probably help keep both parties happy, but it's not a guarantee.

Alternatively, you could divide the tank and get two betta. Saves you the stress of rehoming one party if your betta is too aggressive with tankmates.
