Best Betta Companions?

I recently bought a half moon betta for my 10 gallon. The tank is cycled. I also added a yellow mystery snail but he hasn’t even been on the glass and barely moves around. I have had both for almost a week.

Can any other companion be added or is this enough for the 10 gallon? I was thinking of an african dwarf frog. Would those be suitable? I had a few 15 years ago and could never keep them alive (I was a terrible fish keeper then). Are they hard to keep alive? Any other good fish? Thanks!

It totally depends on the personality of the betta and how heavily planted your tank is, but some varieties of shrimp could be an option!

Thanks. I will watch the betta for a while. He seems calm right now, but who knows. It isn’t heavily planted, but would love to add live plants eventually.

Most bottom feeders work pretty well. Just get something like a kuhlI loach, or a species of Cory cat. Of course you could always get snails too
I don’t have sand in my tank, just regular aquarium gravel. I have khulis in my 55 sand tank and love them.

I thought kuhlI loaches need to be in groups of three at least and in a 30 gallon at least...
