Can i have more fish?

So i have one betta male and a 5.5 Gallon tank, 2 silk plants, 1 plastic plant, cycling atm, with a heater and filter. Will i be able to put any other fish in with the betta or is the tank too small to handle it? If anyone has done so with a 5G/5.5G tank, please let me know how you handled so, and what fish you were lucky with. Thanks!

no, only a shrimp or snail

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

I'm looking at getting the white cloud minnows. They should be okay right? Maybe 3-4? Is that good enough for them?

and are the guppies like any type of guppies fine? same thing with the cory cats? does it matter what kind of specific type of fish it is? Can you give me a suggestion of which type or cory cat, platy, guppy, to go for? and is this the white cloud mountain minnow? i could not find it anywhere else online.

Okay so i did that stocking calculator thing, but im not very sure how to read/understand it..
Along with that, i got this info from that setup (betta with 4 dwarf corys)

"You have plenty of aquarium filtration capacity.

Your aquarium filtration capacity for above selected species is 161%.
Recommended water change schedule: 21% per week.
Your aquarium stocking level is 116%"

Does this mean that i AM able to get 4 corys with my betta? or what?
