No, there are no fish that can happily fit in a 3 gallon tank with a Betta. You could definitely add a Mystery or Nerite snail, however. :)

You need to get a heater for sure. The Aqueon mini bowl heater or zoo med bowl heaters work great for 3gallon bowls. (I have 2 Three-gallon bowls and 1 one-gallon bowl, all with heaters). I wouldn't put any other fish in ANY tank that is less than 10 gallons with a Betta. There simply isn't enough room for it. Just stock your 3gallon really nicely with plants and hiding holes and he'll be very happy :)

I recommend mystery or nerite snails. You could also do a ghost shrimp if you have a covering for your bowls (as they do/can climb out).

I wouldn't put a mystery snail in such a small tank. They get big and poop a lot.

Try the nerite snails. They can't overrun your small tanks even if you happen by a pregnant female. They need saltwater at a certain stage in their life cycle.

Is you Betta still sick? I wouldn't add anything until that's cleared up. Learn to take care on one aquatic critter at a time.
