5.5 Gal and curious about tank mates

I just got me a 5.5 tank and my buddy decided to have guppies and well, they are all pregnant and he put them in my new tank. I went to put my betta in there and well he sort of cornered them. I don't won't his preggo guppies getting killed by my betta. So I was curious as to what tank mates to get for my betta when I get rid of my friends' guppies.

A 5.5 is too small for much else other than a betta and a snail or shrimp.
