Lightbulb Tank mates?

I am hoping to get one or two tank mates for each of my bettas (no snails!). They are sharing a 10 gallon with a divider and I would like maybe one or two (maybe 3 if VERY small) little fish to put with them.
Here is the tank....

And all those fish need to be in groups so they'll need to be in an UNDIVIDED 10+ gallons.

The only thing you can put in 5 gallons with a Betta (if you want to push it) is a snail or ghost shrimp. Maybe even a ADF.

I ma thinking ADF's now, Named Hero (Hayraw) because in mythology she was In love with Leander.
And Maybe Rome for Evander, beacuse his daughter was named Rome and he founded a city that was turned into rome, named after his daughter

Either 2 ADF per 5g tank, or up to 5 ghost or cherry shrimp. Be sure to get 2 or more ADF's because they need company.

ADFs all the way! I love them.
I have a 5gal which is currently housing 2 frogs and a betta, and it's working beautifully.

I ende up getting 4 adfs and 1 gold mystery snail and 5shrimp.i asked for 3 but the guy was like blind and deaf so he accidentally gave me 2 extras. the shrimp are scaring me so Abby (or iheartmyfishies) is adopting them since I dont want to get in HUGE trouble for getting all picky over it. but I am planning on getting aother snail. I think im gonna name the snail i have either Mango or Squish because he jumps from the top of the side of the tank and land with a little squish!
