"Companion" for a female betta
I've had a female VT for about a month now, and just moved her from a 2 gallon tank to a 5.5 gallon tank. I would really like to get her just one tank mate, if that's at all possible... I know you can keep female bettas together, but I heard that the rule of thumb is to keep them in odd numbers, e.g. 3 in a tank, 5 in a tank, etc. What other types of fish are okay to keep with bettas?
EDIT: Maybe I should give some details on my tank if that'll help...
5.5 gallons, heater kept at around 76-80 degrees, no filter (although I plan on getting a sponge filter as soon as I can), no live plants.
