Question tank mates in a 3 gallon?

I just got a new 3g tank, and I want to get a new betta. My husband would like some other fish this time, though (I think he would like some neon tetras or glow tetras). So if I get a betta, what fish would be best to put in with a betta in a 3g tank?

I know that there might not be any because a lot of smaller fish are schooling fish, but I figured I'd ask.

Males:
Spectre - white/black dragon DT; Mr. Bojangles (Bojo) - blue/white/black HM

RIP:
Helios; Gooberfish; Sparrow; Cassia; Root Beer; Pendragon; Uther; I.T.; Arthur; Aether;
Decepticon; Pinna; Newf; Nebula; Altair; Barinthus; Ecto

A 3 gallon is only big enough for 1 betta.

Ditto You would have to have a 10 gallon for a betta and tankmates.

I agree with dramaqueen that a 3 gallon is only big enough for one Betta.


I suggest a 5 gallon with a Betta and some shrimp or a snail. Or you could get a 10 gallon with some Cory Cats.

Bettas: Rose, Sophia, Addie, Ghost, Buster, Holt, Aidan, and Mercutio!

Just my animals: 0.2 Cornsnakes, 0.2 Bearded Dragons, 1.0 Water Dragon, 2.2 Crested Geckos, 1.0 Tiger Salamander, 0.0.1 Tadpole, 0.0.2 Red Eared Slider Turtles, 0.0.1 Map Turtle, 0.0.2 Hermit Crabs, 1.0 Hamster, 1.0 Rabbit, 0.1 Horses, 2.2 Dogs, 0.2 Cats, Chickens, Ducks, Oscar Tank, Planted Bowl, 10 Gallon, 4x 0.5 Gallon, 5 Gallon, and Planted 25 Gallon Tank....Is that it?

You could put a small snail in a 3 gallon or some ghost shrimp. But your tank would have to be cycled first.
