Friends for my Guppies?

Hi :)
I have a 5gal tank with 3 male guppies. I've had them for quite some time now, since late August. I was wondering if I could get them any friends for their tank? I know probably not anymore fish will fit, but could some other aquarium critters work? Also, if any other fish would fit, which ones and how many of each?
Thanks for any suggestions!
(Note: I'm trying to upgrade them to a 10 gal..just have to get Mom to agree.)

Nothing more in the 5g. If you get the 10g you could add 2 more guppies and a few shrimpies!

IMO, you are overstocked in the 5 gallon already. Guppies poop a lot for their size and are pretty active swimmers. I would upgrade them to the 10 gallon if you can get your mum onboard and then consider either some cories or some more guppies. :)

Shrimps scare me, sort of. Lucky for me this store near me called Fin&Feather has terrible bettas :(, but all of their other fish are GREAT! They have the most gorgeous guppies. I think right now they have some "tuxedo guppies", you know the ones with half white half black fins and red fins.
