    Have a 10 gallon tank all cycled with a filter and heater.Just don't know what fish to get.Im interested in getting a betta but my wife doesn't approve of just having one betta.Ive heard about having some neons and a betta.But I've heard mixed reviews about it.Some say it works out perfectly and others say the tetras fin nipped like crazy.

    I'm also interested in some gouramis.I was thinking maybe 3 sparkling gouramis and a couple other fish but I'm not sure what.I was also thinking about maybe a dwarf gourami but I'm not sure my LFS has them.

    I'm open to any stocking ideas ,I'm just not a big fan of shrimp and frogs.

    (Just saying,my LFS doesn't have a huge variety of fish.)

    1 betta in a 10 gallon would be great but if that idea is a no go then maybe guppys? reguler gouramis would get to big for a 10 gallon and would out grow it quick.

    you could try guppies with a female betta sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't

    Great suggestions!However I feel that it's too risky to put female betta with some guppies.Plus I've heard guppies reproduce rapidly which I don't want to deal with per say.

    Maybe look into dwarf puffers, you could have a few and they're very intelligent, recognize their owner, and are fun to watch

    Stick with males guppies - they're the ones that typically have all the bright colors and fancy fins!
