Is there anything I can add into this aquarium with my betta? I really don't like snails, but I was thinking maybe just two or three ghost shrimp? Any suggestions would be great.

A couple shrimp would be a good option. You could do two ghost shrimp, and lots of things like red cherry, blueberry, CRS, BCS..... There are tons. 100's and 100's.

In my 2.5 I dont have anything, Goose really likes his space and he uses the WHOLE tank, swimming like crazy.

In my 10gal i currently have no betta but 5 rasbora's and 2 zebra snails.

I'd say a couple of shrimp is about all you can put in. I don't keep them but have heard they have small bioloads. I've also heard of Bettas munching on them, so be prepared for that in such a small space.

Personally, I wouldn't add anything else to a small tank like that.
