3 gallons is too small for any fish tank mates. You need at least 10 gallons.
You CAN get away with a shrimp or two, though. Personally I don't believe you should get pets and then give them away constantly because you don't have the room... Just my opinion. Whatever you do, realize that a 3 gallon tank is usually considered 100% stocked (go by the inch per gallon rule. Lots of Bettas get 3 inches, and I mean fully grown size) and that inverts (probably the only thing other than a Betta who'll enjoy a 3 gallon tank) need pristine water quality and thrive best in cycled tanks. Otos need to be in groups so they require 20 gallons, and I'm not sure but I think the BN pleco also needs 20 gallons... maybe 10.
If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
