Fish for 10 gallon setup?

So I will soon be moving all my bettas to a divided 20 gallon tank. This leaves me with an empty 10 gallon. I already have all the "beginner" or common freshwater fish such as tetras, livebearers, gouramis, etc. in two other community tanks. I am looking for something different for my 10 gallon, any ideas? Thanks bunches

work good? guess it would be great with bettas. haveing a hard time chosen my filter i got a few messy fish. using the marineland 100gph bio-wheel atm. thinking about getting the 150 gph or 200gph not sure wich as the 200gph is on sale less than the 150 gph. but 200gph might be to strong of a current.

I'd only get platy's in a 10g if its all males...otherwise this tank is overstocked before Christmas day.

Ever thought about shrimp??? Turn it into a shrimp farm They're too cool to watch.

Something different? Ooo, you should look into shell-dwelling cichlids from Lake Tanganyika in Africa.

I have a colony of Neolamprologus multifasciatus in a 10 gallon. Best fish I've ever owned. Hardy, active, fascinating behaviors, and there are always fry in the tank. Can't find these guys at Petsmart/Petco type places, but they're not uncommon among local fish stores and hobbyists.

Definitely consider shell-dwellers. There are a number of species that would work in a 10. ShellDwellers.com has some great info.

I agree on put'n shell dwellers in there.
Of course any suggestion of a Tanganyikan fish gets my vote.
But the dwarf shellies are the only ones ya can put in a tank that small.
Here's my shellies in a ten gal.
