Question Tankmates for 5 gallon

What tank mates can you have for a 5 gal? My boy, Tom, is in there so I wanted to get more fish to put in there. Can I?

Thanks!



I can't believe you're gone, Tom.

5 gallon is too small for any other fish but you could always divide it and get another betta :D..
You can also get a snail or some shrimp if you don't mind not sticking to fish...

Cories need to be in a group of at least 3-4 of their kind, so it isn't possible to have those many with a betta in a 5 gallon.. :(

But the downside is your betta may decide he wants a little shrimp snack. :/ All you can do is try.

Yep, I think a snail might be sturdier :/

Get a moss ball. Sure, it's not an animate object but they're actually way more fun than you'd think. See thread for evidence.
