 Dont  even  put  a  couple  of  tetras.  They  are  best  in  a  school  of  atleast  6.
 A  single  male  betta  with  a  few  nice  plants  will  do  justice  to  this  tank  Smile

 Hi  soulreaver4,
 
 You  dont  have  to  feel  sorry  for  fish  that  are  kept  alone  in  a  tank.  Thats  how  some  of  them  like  it.     Smile  
 
 Just  one  Betta  Splendens  is  my  suggestion.
