I'm a begineers fish keeper and I'm going to rehome my goldfish because I bought too many for my 10 gallon tank.So now I need to decide what is a good fish for a 10 gallon 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

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

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!
