For a single fish? I like Dwarf Gouramis. Depends on how much Platies there are.

I'm going to suggest that you peruse the fish profiles, second tab from the left in the blue baqr across the top of the page. You will find several species well suited to a 10g tank in the Characins and Cyprinids sections. There are also some Catfish that could be considered. There is a max size for each fish, plus minimum tank size, and water parameter and compatibility data.

A word on the Betta, this is not a good community fish and is best on its own. You could keep him in the 10g with some substrate fish.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
