Tankmates for my betta

What would be some good tankmates for my male betta in a 5.5gallon tank?

A few shrimp or a small snail is all.

You can always divide the tank and have another male. :D

For your sized tank, you could divide it in half for another betta OR what I'd suggest is getting a nerite snail.

I used to have two otos on a 5 gal with no problem as long as they have live plants but then I read that that was small for them so I put them on my 55 any way my otos lived in there for about half year it's just my personal experience some people don't recommend them to live in small places since they're sensitive to water parameters

Definitely not any more fish. shrimp or snails is all you've got space for.
