Betta Or Dwarf Gourami For 10 Gal Community Tank?
Hello I have a 10 gallon tank in my dorm and I want to add a little more interest. Most of the fish in it I have had for quite a few years and are a combination from several other tanks (which is why they are not in bigger groups). There are currently 2 harlequin rasboras, 2 white clouds mountain minnows, 3 male yellow guppies, and a bulldog pleco. I'm trying to decide whether to get a dwarf gourami or a male betta. I'd slightly prefer a betta, but the guppies could be an issue. Opinions?
Agree with crzy2. Some suitable species that come to mind are swordtails, cory catfish, cherry barbs, zebra danios, platies, and freshwater shrimp.
Also, if you don't have any already, live plants are a great way to give your tank an instant makeover.
You can't have any fin nippers with bettas. Tiger barbs are a big NO.
The thing with live plants is they dirty your water and you will have to take out the dead leaves that they form. Plastic plants and a air pump is fine.

I think for a 10 gallon you are already WAY overstocked. Sometimes just adding 1 more fish... sends the whole balance off and your original fish start dying off. I wouldn't add anything else. JMO.
