10 gallon divided:
side 1 ---betta and dwarf frog
side 2 ---betta and a few small snails

29 gallon: (i currently have ottos and bumblebees and would like to keep if at all possible)
2 bumblebee gobys(mine seem extremely docile and were bred in fw tank)
4 ottos
1 bristlenose pleco(have a common now he gets too large though)
2 dwarf gouramis
4 khuli loaches

The only problem would be the gouramis. Make sure you get 2 females, or maybe 1 male and 1 female. They are very territorial amongst males.

My betta kills any snails he finds in his tank. For the most part, he's gotten along with my ADFs, but I have had one incident -- one of my frogs tore off his fins a couple months back. I've put him back in with a frog after keeping him in his own tank, and so far, so good. They usually get along great, just be a bit cautious.

I would stick to just one gourami. Females are very difficult to find as most are pumped with hormones to turn them into males prior to being shipped to the lfs as males are much more colourful and therefore easier to sell.

for the 29 gallon i figured this may be more interesting and easier:

2 bumbleebee goby
1 pleco
4 otos
1 male gourami
5 endlers livebearers
3 khulis
3 swordtails...

too much?

Thanks again.
