    I am going to get a 5 gallon tank. Instead of one betta is there another type of fish I could get.

    A small school of celestial pearl danios would work.

    Thank you all for your advice. I have decided to get a ten gallon tank. I can get more fish then. I am actually thinking of tetras. Again thanks.

    A school of 12 ember tetras would be nice.

    Id suggest around 5 in a 5g...

    The OP decided to get a 10 gallon instead.

    Even then, I wouldn't have more than 10....

    (Not to mention, any other newbie may read this later on and think its fine to keep 12 in a 5g.)

    12 is fine in a 10 gallon. They get very small. 12 is the max though.

    Having them in a 25g... I know their size, I personally would- for once - just stick with an inch per gallon rule...
