Question 10 gal tank, what to stock?

Ok for those of you who know about my betta (see other thread) I have now down graded him to a 5.5 gal. He does seem to like it more than the 10 and he just had to check out his new plant. He misses the filter but i make up for it when i play with him which is more, now that he is in the living room.

So now I have the 10 gal which still has 5 gals of cycled water in it. I kinda wanted to get 3 female bettas (just in case I wanted to breed Ceaser (my betta) when Im ready. Id keep alot of the female fry (buy a bigger tank) and give away the males (keeping the ones that look like Ceaser, Black with Gold fins) But that I know is a huge undertaking and I would have to find just the right girl for him. (And no I would never use betta fry as live food grrrrr see insane thread lol) Or Should I stock the 10 gal. with 3-5 longfinned danios? Which I saw at petco today they are sooo pretty when they get bigger. Or should I wait till i get a bigger tank? I just don't want to waste the cycled water left in my 10 gal this would be the perfect time to re-start the 10 gal. So any thoughts on what todo with my 10 gal. No guppies lol


Have a nice night all!

Tetras? I hear they are easy to keep.

Pets are always your friend no matter what.

I've always felt that a 10-gallon is too small for danios, they're really active fish and need room to swim.

I would look into tetras (neons especially), cherry barbs, pygmy gouramis, and white cloud minnows .
