Female Betta Fish

I am thinking about getting a female betta fish since it is more likely they can live among other types of fish.

What are some types of fish they can live with. I dont really want any bottom feeders or anything like that, i want fish that will swim all over the aquarium. Some suggestions I have heard are daninos and tetras, I was wondering if these are good fish and if anyone has any other suggestions,

P.S. They bowl is two gallons.

2 gallons is fine for one betta but would be too small for tankmates.

If you get a larger tank, you could try those fish. I will say that it all depends on the temperament of the Betta. She could be just as aggressive as a male Betta to other fish.
The best bet for tankmates would be algae eaters.

Otos and cories make good tankmates from what I've heard.

Drama is right. I'm thinking about getting some Otos to add to my 10 gallon with my one female betta.

When I was a little kid my sister had a betta named "Timmy" and he shared a tank with a lot of guppies. When a boy guppy got in to a fight with another boy guppy for mating rights, we'd blame the damage of poor Timmy. Eventually we found out what boy guppies can do to each other, and by then we decided to put timmy back in the ten gallon he used to live in, and by then he was OLD!

Ya i was thinking of getting a three gallon bowl if I can find one, I would like to try to put even one other fish other than a betta that wasn't a bottom feeder. But thanks for all the advice, i am still looking in as to what to do.

You'd need to get 5-10+ gallons before you decide to add more fish.
