Rope fish need huge tanks with secure lids, they are escape artists. I think they are best alone also, big but really shy.
Red claw crabs need brackish water, PLEASE never keep one in fresh water, they will slowly wither away to nothing.
Dwarf fresh water shrimp are a good option, the Betta may eat them. Amano shrimp are large enough that only a psycho betta would try.
Diversity wise- shrimp, and a snail species like nerite/zebra or rabbit (tylo) snails (gorgeous if you can find them). ADFs kept with fish is anhuge commitment. You can also try Mexican dwarf crayfish (CPO), if you can find them, they can be hella expensive. :)
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
