Just incase you didn't realize this...if you get the 2.5 for the betta...no catfish. But shrimp or an ADF or 2 would be fine.

I personally would not keep anything in a 2.5 gallon with a betta...2.5 gallons is fine for 1 betta, but I personally go with 3+ for shrimp and 5+ for ADFs (as they prefer to be kept in groups).

Thats nice that your female gets along with your male, its just that keeping them together hardly ever works, not everyone has a big enough tank for that, and your case must be one of the exceptions :) Unless your breeding of course. Yeah, 2 females can live together, but I think alot of nipping would be done because there isnt enough females to spread the agression, unless again, you have the females in a big tank.

(looking at my post now, it seems a bit offensive, so please note that I dont mean it that way. ;D)

BettaFish15 is correct. Some people who have exceptionally large tanks that are heavily planted to break up the line of sight can have both sexes in there, but most people don't have that luxury, and it can be dangerous for your bettas.
