Looking for a Companion for my Betta, Yakamoz

It's been a little time since I've been here (been working a lot over the summer), but my newest betta, Yakamoz, seems to be very well fitted for a community fish. He's non-aggressive to the other living things in his tank (I checked to see if he's female and he isn't, just a runt), does well with other fish, and isn't nippy.

Currently he's in 10 gallon with a few tetras and two shrimp. I believe I have room for at least one more fish, but I want something a bit more personable (not a fan of Molly's and Platy's) and was hoping you guys could give some advice on what to get?

It doesn't necessarily have to be fish (but I'd prefer it) so if you have other suggestions, feel free to add. Just something that's non-schooling and personable.

Actually a 10 gal tank doesn't have much more room for anything else. With six tetra and a single betta, there aren't any more fish you can fit in that tank. The only fish small enough to fit in a tank of that size (and can work with a betta) need schools. Shrimp or snails are the only other things I would recommend to put in your tank.
