Nope, no crab will work. They will tear the bettas fins off, at the least.

A crab by itself would work, just find out what size tank it needs and what kind of water conditions, water parameters, etc.

An African dwarf frog is fine to house with a betta. Just make sure you have at least 5g for the frog and betta. Frogs can be hard to feed when a betta is in the tank.

Sounds iffy. I know that you can't keep crayfish in tanks with small fish, because they'll attack and eat them. I'm guessing same thing for crabs, though I don't know much about them.

ADFs are fine, though. I've been thinking of buying one, myself.

My bettas loved ghost shrimp. They usually eat their babies, and get so full its not even funny. They dont usually eat the bigger ones, but I would get some plants for coverage.

just a thing about the crabs. i believe fiddler crabs need to slowly go to brackish water during its life time. Making it unsuitable for your betta. There may be a freshwater only crab but i am not too sure abou tit.

Yes, they do require brackish water.

With my Betta, it's a NIGHTMARE!! Kroenen (Betta) will steal Johann's (frog) food and stuff himself to the point of severe bloating; so I have to isolate the two for dinnertime. Kroenen was quick to pick up on the whole turkey baster = FOOD thing. Johann's learning -- the last time he stretched himself up toward the baster for his blood wormies.

ADFs can be difficult to feed themselves, however. I have to get the food to wiggle around a bit so Johann can see it and snarf it. A turkey baster is really handy for that.
