I'm fairly new to fish keeping, by fairly new I mean I started my first tank only days ago. I'm doing a fish in cycle, mostly due to my poor choices and my beginner mistakes-
Anyways, I was wondering what would be good to keep in here with my betta, something Hardy, not too aggro, and will help with the cycling.
My tank is a 10 gallon and is unplanted

Wouldn't recommend a community tank for a 10 gal with a betta. While there are a few options for tank mates, including snails and shrimp, I would wait until your tank has cycled to add them. They are sensitive to poor water quality so I'd cycle the tank with just your betta.

I would suggest either some shrimp or snails.
That's only recommended if you don't have a betta that makes a meal of the shrimp, snails go untouched in most cases.
