Buddies for My Betta?

Okay... So I think I should give a little background to my situation first. I am going off to college at the end of August. I always had the impression that I would be taking my little fishie with me, but due to my new room situation (I was put in a double room with that will have three people in it), taking my fish would make it more cramped than it already is. My mom said that while I was gone, she would take care of my fish. However, she thinks it would look really cool to add some more fish.

So my question is, what would be a good, low-maintenance kind of fish that will not breed, and would be compatible with my betta? Will this other fish need a bubbler?

I have a 10-gallon tank (it just has my betta, Fluffy, in it right now) that is cycled. It has a baffled filter, and a heater.

Thanks for any advice! :D

Depends on your betta's personality. I've had bettas that become best pals with their tankmates (a shoal of pygmy cories), and I've also had bettas that were psychotic axe-murderers that would kill anything that moved.

Just bear in mind that if you/your mom do end up buying a tankmate and it doesn't work out, you will need a second tank to house that other fish/snail/shrimp and now have 2 tanks to take care of.
