Bottom feeders in my 3.5 gallon tank?

I was just wondering if i'd be able to fit bottom feeders in my 3.5 gallon tank? If so, what sort do you recommend? I'm sort of new to the betta world

Thanks! :'D

Here's a picture of it:



Ignore all the bubbles lining up everywhere, i just put him in this tank!

Nice tank! 3.5 gallons is too small for another fish, but you could get a ghost shrimp.

Yeah, you could get a 1-2 shrimp!!! They are really cute little critters.

or instead of shrimp, some bettas will eat them, you could put an oto

31 Betta Males
12 CrownTail
7 HalfMoon
5 DeltaTail
4 DoubleTail
3 Veil Tail


44 Betta Females
Round, Crown, Spade

65 gallon
55 gallon
35 gallon
2 - 20 gallon
4 - 10 gallon
16 - 1.5-2 gallon

MTS has struck, resistance is futile

I currently have an Eclipse tank with both a betta, an otto, and ghost shrimp.

When the otto first went in my betta wouldn't leave him alone. He followed the otto everywhere and flared at him constantly. After about a week he lost interest, now he ignores the otto. I never saw any evidence of him attacking the otto, I think it was mostly curiosity and making sure the otto knew who was in charge.

My ghost shrimp went in recently with much the same effect. I didn't know how he'd react to them or even if he'd try to eat them but at 36 cents a pop I figured no big loss if he did eat them. He's still curious but so far no attacks.
