Yes, bettas do fine by themselves because they are solitary fish. Tankmates are usually the owners' preference, not the betta's.

I believe Khuli loaches will get to big for his tank with the other fish and they like a soft subtrate so if you have gravel I would not suggest them.

It is a type of alge eater but if your tank is only 3 gallons the only thing I think you could try to put in there is maybe a ghost shrimp or 2 just know he may eat them.

I looooooove kuhli loaches. They're so freakin' adorable.

I think they need at least 25 gallons, and they burrow in the substrate so something soft is best.

I love my cories as much as I do my betta. I have 1 skunk, 1 panda, and 2 false julii and it took a bit but they all swim about together though the group makeup varies at times. I'm not so sure Schroeder likes the rest of the Peanut gang though (Panda = Snoopy, skunk = Linus, juliis = peppermint patty and the girl with glasses lol)
