    Photo of tank?

    Bettas can be difficult, especially in such a small tank.

    Zebra Danios. I like Long finned ones, and leopard danios.

    Sorry about the bad quality of the picture. I can add more plants. There is one corner completely covered in plants but I’m waiting for them to grow some more since the tank is pretty new. I didn’t get the whole tank in the photo.
    It looks kind of like the tank of another member but that was not on purpose. I did use the same method for a pre intake filter though.

    From what I know ghost shrimp and amano shrimp are much different...but I've never kept ghost shrimp before so! Btw amano shrimp are really good at cleaning live plants

    Arent zebra danios a colder water fish than the betta? Depending on the betta it may nip and chase other fish

    they are slightly colder, but I have kept them together with no fin nipping, and they do well in warmer water.

    Ember Tetras would be great! They stay nice and small and should be fine with a betta.
    Depending on the length of the tank, Harlequin Rasbora should work as well. I obviously wouldn't get as many as the Ember tetras as they are larger, but still I've kept them with a betta in a 10 gallon before with no issues. Though I now have a new one who seems to be a bit of a jerk, so I guess it depends on the fish. Though typically it should be a fine combo.

    I added more plants and a nerite snail. If I add kuhli loaches can I also have something else? I have the clown pleco in another tank because it gets along with the bristlenose.
