Betta 1.5 gallon tank can he have friends?

If there is anything that you can put in a 1.5 gallon tank with a male betta fish what is it i think he may want a friend ive heard of snails but they really cant play with the betta any ideas? also would a snail help keep the tank cleaner

Mystery snail would be a nice addition. Calcium supplements must also be provided to prevent shell erosion.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

IF the betta does not try to eat them, some sort of shrimp will keep him occupied. I have seen some shrimp actually play on the bettas head when
I had ghost shrimp with my betta. The betta didn't mind at all.

Either a snail or shrimp provided he doesn't eat them like F4A said. The tank is too small for anything else. Your betta would really appreciate a bigger tank. If you did upgrade you could think about more options for friends for him but as things stand I think shrimp or a snail are your only options.
