I feel like I’ve come up with ninety different ideas for this tank, The tank is stable, and has finally cycled. So, I am going to the pet store tomorrow to get some more fish for it. It currently has:
4x kuhli loaches
3x purple Rasboras
2x netrite snails(I’m going to move them)
So option 1 is this:
7x Purple Rasboras
4x kuhli loaches
1x betta
2x feeder guppies
Option 2 is:
7x purple Rasboras
4x kuhli loaches
2x platies
Edit: the kuhlis will just be in here until they are big enough to be moved to a larger tank, so they won’t be in there for more than another month or so. I have a spare tank for the Betta, so I’m not worried

I’m an idiot, thanks David. I wouldn’t reccomend either as the tank is already overstocked and adding more will only make it more so, but if you decide you want to do one I agree that option 2 is less dangerous.

If you do option 2, you should get male feeder guppies, they're prettier and smaller than the females. This will also insure you won't get overrun with fry.

I would do neither of those options.

For option 1, purple rasboras are too active to be in a 10 gallon. They need at least a 20 gallon. It's also very risky to keep a betta with any other fish in a 10 gallon; I wouldn't recommend risking your fish.

For option 2, the purple rasboras need a bigger tank.
