Possible tank mates?

2 male bettas in 2 separate 10 gallon tanks. What tank mates could be in the tank other than shrimp and snails?

I like african dwarf frogs! The bettas ignore them because (obviously) they look nothing like fish lol. I have never had a problem with them. My EEPK male lives with two.
However they are not very strong swimmers, so your filters need to be on a very low setting. They can get sucked in.

Also, Cory cats are nice tankmates as long as your bettas don't mind them. I have some bettas that don't mind them, and some that do!

I am planning to put some live and fake plants and some hiding spots. One of the males is pretty calm, and the other male is just slightly aggressive
