Question tank mates in a 3 gallon?

I just got a new 3g tank, and I want to get a new betta. My husband would like some other fish this time, though (I think he would like some neon tetras or glow tetras). So if I get a betta, what fish would be best to put in with a betta in a 3g tank?

I know that there might not be any because a lot of smaller fish are schooling fish, but I figured I'd ask.

A 3 gallon is only big enough for 1 betta.

Ditto You would have to have a 10 gallon for a betta and tankmates.

I agree with dramaqueen that a 3 gallon is only big enough for one Betta.


I suggest a 5 gallon with a Betta and some shrimp or a snail. Or you could get a 10 gallon with some Cory Cats.

You could put a small snail in a 3 gallon or some ghost shrimp. But your tank would have to be cycled first.
