Fishy Friends?

I'm on a small debate on giving Fishy some friends.
He has been alone for the year or so that I've had him.
He is in a 3.5 gallon tank.
What fish would go well with him?

No fish in that size tank, you'd need a 10g or bigger. Shrimp or snails can fit in there though :)

I believe shrimp you have to buy bottom-feeder pellets for.

For your tank size I would get a snail. I have a snail (Avon is his name) living with my Guppies and sucker fish and they go toghether GREAT. And they also go calmly with Bettas. So that's a good choice, I think.


P.S. (Snails are algae eaters. So if you don't have algae in your tank, buy Algae Wafers at your local pet store. If you DO have algae in you tank, he eats it right up!)

Okay
So if I get a snail is it asexual and reproduce with itself?
I don't wanna get one and then my betta tank is over run with snails and I'd have to keep putting them into my 75 gallon chiclids.

Fishy Fishy, you can always put them in your 75 when there are too many :) Cichlids LOVE them as a snack. You could also get some Assassin Snails to clean them up.
