Snails. Bettas don't mind them.

Depends on the betta. Also snails require hard water and high calcium in the water, this makes betta's prone to fin rot.

Green Nerite snails might be ok. They are a brackish water snail that adapts to freshwater, will not reproduce in freshwater, and has a flap that covers the hole when they retreat into shell.

I always used golden snails and they both lived happily.

That all depends on the personality of the Betta! Some are fine with it, others not so much.
