    Welcome to Fish Lore!!! Nice to have you here! :)

    Well, for a 10g, only invertebrates imo. Shrimp and snails would be a perfectly acceptable option for that tank size. If you wanted to go up to a 20g then that would give you a lot more options.

    But really, it all depends on your betta, whether or not you have one with a good temperament for tankmates.

    Most male bettas are best left in a tank without other fish. Some inverts are good tank mates as BornThisWayBettas stated above.
