Try feeder/wild guppies. They're much less threatening to a male betta.Shivam said:Although guppies require 5 gallon (preferably 10), I think you can house 2-4 male guppies.
Now I know that long flowing fins of guppies make them betta's target, but there are many short finned varieties of guppies. Hence betta won't have any tiny flowing fins to chase.
I also have 15 guppies (all male) with a betta in my small outdoor pond and they get along pretty well (in fact, sometimes it's the tiny guppies that chase away betta )
To summarize, if you don't overcrowd the tank and choose short tailed guppies, you should be fine
