Companions for a divided ten gallon?

Hello!
I just bought a ten gallon today.
I'm planning on dividing it so I can have two Bettas in it.
Are there any fish/shrimp/etc. that would be okay for each side?
I'm already planning on there being a couple moss balls on each side, but I would like to know if anything else would be compatible.

Shrimp would be good, but may become a snack, you can also get mystery snails, or nerite snails. But there are no fish that anyone would reccomend for that size of tank (5 gallons).


On a side note, what mold is that BJD in your avvie? I have two dollzones and a bobobie. :3 I love them. XD

Hmm, okay.
I've been thinking about getting ghost shrimp.

He's a Dream of Doll Dream of Idol Kellan. :D
His name is Fitzwilliam.
I also have a Bobobie Elfkin named Adaleize.

I have ghost shrimp, and they seem to do fine. They have almost no bioload, but they can be a bit territorial with other shrimp, so in a five gallon space i would say to just get two or three for each side.


I have a Dollzone Megi named Moggie, a Dollzone Mo named Mowen, and a Bobobie Sunny named Nii. :3

Ill PM you some pictures :D.

Hopefully my Betta will get along with the ghost shrimp.
They fit the theme of my tank perfectly.

I thought I'd ask this here too.
In my divided ten gallon, would it be okay to have one snail and two ghost shrimp on each side? Along with one male Betta, that is.

Yeah As long as you kept up with water changes regularly, because snails produce a lot of waste.

Awesome.
I've had snails before and I like them, but I also wanted to try out the shrimp.
This is the perfect solution.
