Looking to get some friendlies for the tank

Hey all, I have a 10 gallon- as seen here (however, now it has some more plants, and I plan on getting even more plants!)
and I would like to put some other fish in.

The only thing in there now is:
1 CT Betta
1 Mystery Snail
4 Ghost Shrimp

I like the neon tetras, but I feel like they may not have enough room - especially since I'd get 5 or so so they can shoal.

So I'm looking for some other fish, preferably slower moving.

Any suggestions?

edit: and no, I will not divide the tank

Cories? They are really good cleaners!

Neons will probably be eaten...

Cories are good, but do best in groups of 4 or more.

What about some Otocinclus catfish?

I already tried Otos... my tank didn't have enough algae, and they refused to eat the algae waffer.

I don't know about that. My betta is pretty timid. It can't hurt to try though, I suppose.

when I looked it up it looked like their max temp range was 78 - which is right where my tank is.

Anyway, thanks. I'll keep looking

Well, I bought 2 Zebra Danios.

However... I'm now down to one. I didn't even get the other guy into the tank.
I don't own a fish net, so when I usually get new tank residents I cut the bag and drain water into the sink (perhaps you can see where this is going).

Anyway, one of the Danios, managed so swum out of the small hole I cut... and into the drain :-\
