Agree. A single Betta on its own, fine, in a 5g. If you go with a 10g, select small (the "dwarf" type species) fish but no Betta. You could have a very active and nice display with small fish.
Mosquito Rasbora, Scarlet Badis, Ember Tetra, Celestial Pearl Danio, Emerald Dwarf Rasbora, corys (group of 3-5) for the substrate... lots to choose from. These names are shaded meaning they are included in pour profiles, click on the name to see the info. Corys are under catfish, and many species are in our profiles.
GFor plants, depends somewhat on light; you will need an overtank light. For small tanks, the less expensive incandescent fixtures work fine with one or two compact fluorescent bulbs in a daylight (around 6500K). Two 10w CF daylight bulbs over a 10g is sufficient. Plants like pygmy chain swords, Brazilian Pennywort which can also float (floating plants are always good with these fish), Java Fern, Java Moss...these are also in our profiles.
