small snails and ghost shrimp work well.

Bettas don't have "friends". They may interact with other fish, but it will either be a territorial instinct (trying to chase them away) or just curiosity.

Your pleco is going to outgrow your ten gallon. At the moment, you are completely stocked with just a betta and a pleco, as plecos have a very large bioload.

The type of fish you can add (once you rehome the pleco) is largely dependent on your water parameters. What is your hardness and pH?

i added 2 zebra's and a silver molly to my tank. the veiltail does not seem to mind them at all. he does play with one of the zebra fish for a few minutes at a time. King seems to like his new play mates and has not attacked any of them thus far.
