Hi, I'm setting up a new 5 gallon tank, and I kinda had an idea of what to stock it with but I want to make sure it's not out of the question. I intended it to originally be for a betta, but I'd like to add some tank mates. I've read that neon tetras do well with them, but I've seen people say they have to be in a 10gal, and some say 5 is okay. Would 4-5 be fine in a 5gal with a betta? If not I'd appreciate any alternate stocking ideas! Thanks!
