I’m currently in the process of setting up a five gallon tank for a betta (going to be filtered, heated, and cycled before fish) and I was wondering if I will have room for some little tetras like neons,embers, or green neons?

I wouldn’t, unless you got at least a 10 gallon. You could try Shrimp and Snails though!

Ghost shrimp, amano shrimp, and some have success with cherry shrimp, though those can be expensive snacks. If you end up with green water (lol I did) you can do fairy shrimp as well, and those basically look like fish
