Divided 10 gallon

Hello! So, one of my bettas died a few days ago, so now I have 2 bettas in my 10g tank. Is there anything I could put in one or both of the sections? I've tried ghost shrimp before, and that didn't work out too well. Also, I can't find ADFs anywhere anymore. Is there anyother thing I could put in the sections?

Mystery Snail? they say these require atleast a 5 gallon tank, others say a 2.5
Some dwarf algae cleaner? I have a flying fox in with my betta, you could have an otocinculus but I'm not sure what size tank these require or if they shoal.

If you're saying you still want to keep the tank divided and get a fish other than a betta, I would not suggest cories or otos. Otos, cories, and ADFs all like to be kept with members of their own species. One section of a ten gallon would also not be enough horizontal space for any of these fish. I suggest simply getting another betta or opening up the section so one of your boys has more space. If you opened up a section so that it was ~6.7 gallons, I could see potentially getting two ADFs--but you said you hadn't been able to find them, sadly.
