Question Tankmates in a 2.5 gallon tank?

Hi, my betta (named Fishstick) is currently in a large glass vase (I got him yesterday and will be getting a tank in a few days). I need to get a small tank since I'm in a dorm so I was thinking of getting a 2.5 gallon tank... is that enough space for one or two other fish and if so, which kind of fish would be best off in a smaller tank?

Thanks!

in a 2.5 gallon, a betta is best alone. It'd be too cramped if you add other fish.

Your fish love watching you as much as you love watching them. So please practice responsible fishkeeping.

No Prob. Bettas are mosly solitary fish anyways, and he won't be lonely.

One cool thing about bettas is that they're pretty much antisocial towards other fish but they love watching people almost just as much as people like watching them. Take good care of Fishstick and have fun.

Your fish love watching you as much as you love watching them. So please practice responsible fishkeeping.

I agree with adiumroot. Bettas are solitary and do fine on their own.
