Suggestions for tank mates...

Ok I am looking for suggestions on what to put into the 10 gal tank at work. I have a Betta and a snail that will go in there. I have had a Betta with Neons, Swordtails, Fancy Tail Guppys, and Zebra Danios in 20 Gal tanks over the years so I am looking for something different I like the idea of a handful of small schooling fish of some type or a few different types that do well in pairs. I will only have artifical plants if that helps at all.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Bettas are not reliably mixed with other fish, particularly if the others have long fins (like guppies) or are slow eaters.

The 10 is too small for zebra danios, but you could likely do the neons.

Thank you for your suggestion. I know some Bettas can be agressive but I have had several over the 20 years I have had aquariums in with the fish I mentioned abouve and never had a problem. I do have a back up tank incase there is a problem.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

With a back up tank, you could likely risk quite a few options for the lower and mid levels of the tank. You might be able to find dwarf loaches that have similar water and temp requirements or possibly a school of any small tetra.
