What can I put in with my betta

I would like to get some other fish to put in with my betta. He is in a 3 gallon tank. Is that enough space to put another fish or shrimp in? And does it make doing a 100% water change harder, and would I need a filter? I am not sure I will add anything, but am considering it.
Thanks.

RIP:To all my sweet bettas swimming under the rainbow bridge. Shall miss you all.

In a 3g tank, I would not add any other fish, not enough room, you could add shrimp or snails along with regular water changes twice weekly.

I agree with OFL. I would only add a few ghost shrimp or possibly a small snail. If you do you need to do twice weekly water changes. A filter always helps but isn't necessary for either shrimp or mystery or nerite snails.

I'd only squeeze in a ghost shrimp, personally. Just keep in mind that they're sensitive to water conditions.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

If you are going to put in ghost shrimps, make sure you monitor their relationship (Betta and Shrimp) and sometimes it can get pretty nasty for the both of them. My friends Betta got murdered by this really aggressive Ghost Shrimp he bought, the ghost shrimp some how managed to literally snip off bits of his caudal fin, pectoral fin were missing and this tail.

So yea just be careful. I removed all my shrimps and put them into a seperate tank with only Ghost Shrimps.
