Low maintenance small tankmate?

I'm looking for some sort of shrimp or something that would go in a two gallon bowl. It has to be low maintenance and cheap. Suggestions?

My Bettas:
Sonic, Red and Blue veiltail
Neptune, Blue veiltail

My Dog:
Princess-10 year old German Shepherd

My (Grandparents') Cat:
Bella-14 year old tuxedo-going through her second childhood with an attitude

None as of now.

Check out my story on here!

A two gallon bowl is not large enough (bio-load wise) to put a companion with your betta. You'll need a larger tank.

I thought shrimp had a low bioload?
