For a 7 gallon, 1 snail or a couple of shrimp. Is your 7 gallon filtered and heated? If you have shrimp your Betta might make a treat out of them so make sure you have plenty of hiding spots. I have also heard with snails the Betta might attack the eyes.

With 7 gallons really your only choice is 1 shrimp or 4-7 shrimp.

Ditto.

You can also put some interesting plants in there which will provide enjoyment on a different wavelength.

Here's a link to my office fishie Brad where you can see anubia inside the little tank and pothos growing above and into it.
