    I'm a begineers fish keeper and I'm going to rehome my goldfish because I bought too many for my 10g tank.So now I need to decide what is a good fish for a 10g tank.I can't decide whether to get platies or bettas.

    Welcome to Fishlore!
    Bettas have a lot of personality and have really great colors. For a 10 gallon I think you can have 3-4 platies or so. Or, you can have a single betta. It's really up to you:).

    Beta would be my choice, because some plats go baby crazy and u may need a bigger tank at that point.
    of course you could always go with shrimp

    Or you could get a dwarf pufferfish for your 10 gallon! They're insane! ^.^

    Dwarf puffers are pretty cool :). But They might be a bit tricky for new fish keepers

    Ghost shrimp are as easy as it gets ;)

    4-5 gups seems like alotf or a 10 gallon to me

    I vote Betta just because I want one. I can live vicariously through you. :D

    2-3 platies tops for a 10G, IMO.

    They're super gentle and come in tons of cool color schemes though :) I love the platy in my profile pic!
