Someone talk me off my ledge please!

I'm thinking about getting another botia modesta to go with the one I have already. Should I do this? I want my fish to come out of hiding once in a while. I have 4 neons in q-tank that I was going to put in with him in about one more week. But I'm wondering, would the neons (dither fish) work to make him less shy, or would another modesta be better? The tank is a 10g with one large castle for hiding and I'm already planning on getting a bigger tank at the end of the year. Neelix is approx. 4in already. I would either have one modesta and 4 neons OR have just 2 modesta in the tank. Tank has been up since X-mas and is cycled.

Am I crazy yet?
