Question What can live with a female betta in a 5 gallon tank?

It will be heated,filtered and lit. Wanting to do a small community. I've posted about a ten gallon. Still trying to decide which.

A 5G really isn't big enough for much of a community. A 5G can be divided for 2 bettas or left as one for a betta and a couple of snails or shrimp. Go with the 10G if you want more fish. :)

You can't put more fish in, but some shrimp or an African Dwarf or two will be okay.

No ottos. They need 10g's. Just stick with shrimp and snails as tankmates. :)

Nope, nothing else besides shrimp or snails. There are many varieties of shrimp and snails, I'd look into them.
