Are there any tankmates for a betta in a 10 gal other than shrimp or snails?

In my opinion, no. It’s too small to keep any fish because the only fish that will get along with betta are schooling fish and need more room for their full school.

You can get away with c. pygemaus or c. habrosus in a 10 G. They are dwarf species of cory catfish, and thusly, they need to be kept in groups of at least 6 individuals. They are harder to find in fish stores—my own LFS only got the habrosus in by accident! If you go that route, make sure a) you’re betta is tolerant of tank mates and b) that you filtration that can handle the heavy bio-load in the 10 G. (I suggest doubling the filtration and going with something that can handle a 20 G.) 

I keep my betta with three female non-fancy guppies >.<. Not a typically kept fish, I love them, but they’re not brightly colored or anything. They’re fine in their trio, they aren’t aggressive towards the betta, and they don’t have showy tails, so the betta doesn’t aggress towards them.

It wasn’t actually 4Chan. It was a marketing firm that created the site in order to get 4chan shut down. I mean, it was pretty believable that people from 4chan would do this, but it wasn’t.

Please remember that this is not “4chan”. This is a small group of users on the 4chan forum. They do not represent the whole of 4chan just like the few loud misandrists here do not represent the whole of Tumblr. It’s really simple to dehumanize these people by saying “4chan” is threatening this stuff. But as anonymous as the forum is, there are real individuals doing this. It’s a disservice to let them hide behind the forum name. And they’re not all teenagers making threats and giggling behind their monitors. Some of them are adults. Some are kids. Some are women. Some are men. Some are bored people who think its a funny thing to do on the weekend. Some will spend entire days trying to make these threats come to life. We need to change the mentality. 4chan is not threatening Emma Watson with sexual harassment. A lot of real people sitting behind their computers are threatening Emma Watson with sexual harassment.

Thank you for making me aware of my generalisation. I agree i was putting 4chan users under one big negative umbrella, and apologise for it.
I understand that not all 4chan users are like this. However, personally speaking, i find it very difficult to disassociate these negative impressions from 4chan as a whole, due to the very fact that it is an anonymous platform and it has been the source of a great deal of negativity in the past. Once again, i agree that this is not representative of all 4chan users. But this vocal minority has made it nigh impossible for me to view 4chan in anything but a negative light.

I completely understand. My reblog was not specifically directed at you, I’ve seen quite a few posts over the last few months that do the same. I try to remind people of that because I spend a lot of time on other forums and see how tumblr is viewed based on a small subset of the users.

Idk why Yasuo is allowed.

Notice the Yasuo’s three or four levels higher than anyone on the enemy team. Any champion can be dumb if they get fed.

How do you guys fill big tanks without disturbing the gravel or plants? I need to pour my water in with a 1 gallon container but I can’t do it slowly and it always stirs up my gravel and my plants get torn out of the gravel and fall apart. Any tips on what to do?

I use one hand…

I siphon, like others have suggested (my freshwater tank is on a lower level than my saltwater, so I can set the bucket up higher than it). But if I’m adding more than a couple gallons (if I do more than a 25% water change), I use a pump and hose. It’s a small investment, but so worth it: http://www.amazon.com/Cobalt-Aquatics-Power-Head-MJ1200/dp/B005QRHEJW
