Good luck on your search for betta companions. I'm finding it to be hit and miss.

Strange thing is, the LFS has a male betta in almost every tank they have. There's even a tank that has a betta and about 10 kissing gouramis, which is not supposed to be possible, but they all get along. What the heck?
I think an ADF would be best as I've heard they're also hardy.

I'm still trying to convince my parents, after they saw the snail it was a big NO to any snails so now the only thing I can get is a betta and even that is going to be difficult.

I want to get a Marimo ball as well.

I do want ADFs now though but my mom says no.

10 gallon:
1 Dwarf Gourami - Balin
8 Neon Tetras
1 Otocinclus

RIP Plagueis.

Just train the frogs to hide when she comes in your room.

LOL!

I went to Petsmart and saw the cutest little guy today. He was red and small and kept on looking at me. He had very minor fin rot but nothing some warm clean water couldn't fix up, and I HAD to get him. But no, mother said no. :(

Aww! :( see, my parents hate my tanks and tell at me whenever I get more fish. My response: "I've been keeping fish for almost 4 years now. Stop telling at me for these dang things. You don't take care of them, I do. And, quite frankly, I enjoy them, so let me be happy and continue with my hobby." Course, you can't say the exact same thing, but ... xD my dad told me last week that I was only allowed to have two tanks. I still have 5. (Such. A. Rebel! xD)

Still, I hope you and your parents work out an agreement. I tend to always win my arguments by saying that I know more about fish than they do, therefore I know what they need and what they can handle.

LOL! I wish I could buy more tanks by choice but we don't live in a very large home so I only have one. I'll say something like that to them, though! :P

I'm hoping to convince my mom to take me there so I can get him and divider materials from the crafts shop (which is right by Petsmart) but I don't know. I hope no one bought him, but he was the only active one compared to the others.
