I have a 10 gallon, lightly planted tank that is in the middle of cycling but will be done (hopefully) in a few more weeks. Right now I have a few zebra danios, a couple of cherry barbs, a ghost shrimp, and a snail. I plan to get rid of the zebra danios and keep the 2 cherry barbs and shrimp. I have a male crowntail betta in a 1 gallon tank that I will move to the 10 gallon as soon as it's done cycling. Any suggestions on what else I could put in there or will that be more than enough?

**Edited to add: My betta seems very peaceful. I have 1 ghost shrimp in his tank and the ghost shrimp will actually swim up and pester him. I thought for sure that the betta would eat the shrimp but instead he turns and swims the other way!

Seeing your a begginner, I would not stock too heavily. Just keep what you have for now with the betta in, not sure if the cherry barbs will work in a 10 gal, I am sure you will get more posts.

Is this the same tank you asked about in this thread? If so, you were given all the information you needed there, including appropriate stocking levels for this tank. : )
