Different kinds of friends?

I really want to expand my tank size to 10 gallons so that I can get a few friends for Ace. At the moment he lives with one ghost shrimp and to me it just isn't enough lol. I was just wondering what are ALL the different kind's of friends he could have and how many different friends I could have living with the little guy?

Marbled crayfish, female guppies, pygmy/small cory cats (not albinos, spotteds, or any other larger one), mystery snail (they get very large), tetras (penguins, neons, black neons etc...), different shrimp, otocinclus, rasboras, common/marbled hatchetfish, exotic catfish, etc......

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

Probably shouldn't do mollies they are labeled as fin nippers and brackish water fish. (I think the black and white spotted balloon mollies are adorable though they remind me of Weebles.)

.....Betta Fish are like potato chips, it's hard to have just one!
Arm yourself with knowledge. Consider advise. Make informed decisions.
