Question Tank mates?

What is a good kind of fish that can live with a betta in a 1.5g? Or none at all?

I was thinking maybe something that eats algae that is not a snail. I've already been down that road...

none a 1.5 is kinda small to start with but any more fish and you run the risk of over pollution from the waste....

Yeah, that is what I thought. I could have sworn someone on here said I could get something like a ghost shrimp...I don't know. Maybe it was my teacher. Haha.

A 1.5 is just big enough for a betta. You can have a betta and a few shrimp in a 5 gallon, though.

Yep. What they said. A shrimp and a betta in a 1.5g tank really isn't a good idea. Even though shrimp have almost no bioload, they are extremely sensitive to water parameters.
