    I have a 5.5 gallon tank and I was wondering what fish could I add to make the tank more lively and I'm looking for something low maintenance, like shrimp

    Nerite snails and shrimp can work well with bettas depending on how aggressive your betta is.

    5.5 gallon tank? I would say none, personal preference. First, the tank is less than 5.5 gallons (unless you measured the length, width, height of water and calculated actual waste volume). Second, bettas are territorial, not sure you have enough room for more stuff, you would have to move the beta out, rearrange the tank, re introduce beta last into the tank. Maybe some shrimp, but they may become lunch. Often people suggest snails etc. I personally would just add (fake ) plants and ornaments and keep it simple.
