    Long story short I was at my LFS that takes in used things then sells them. They happened to have a 10 gallon halfmoon, tetra whisper, aqueon quitflow 10, and a led light for $10. I now have another hundred pounds of water in my room:D. I am going to set it up later today, but I need to know what i should put in it and how i should decorate it. I am wanting to get a large group of ember tetras, but I dont know how many. I already put one of the filters on my established tank.

    You could do at least 10 ember tetras, probably up to 12.

    That's what i was thinking. Do they need very densly planted tanks? And, my tank does not have a lid. Would I have to worry about jumpers?

    I'm not really sure on that, as I have no experience keeping them, but I would probably get a lid no matter what, just to be better safe than sorry. I'm sure some other people will know if they need densely planted tanks.

    In a 10 gallon I wouldn't keep any other fish with a betta

    They don't need densely planted tanks but they prefer them.
    I wouldn't worry too much about embers jumping but bettas are well known jumpers.

    I agree with the above.
