It's generally said one inch of fish per gallon. So if you have fish that grow to about 2 inches, only 5 fish. You maybe able to add one or two more, but it's not really recommended to keep them healthiest and happiest.

1 inch per gallon isn't very accurate. :(
Your best options are:
-platties
-cory catfish
-endler's livebearers
-ember tetras
-neon tetras
-harlequin rasboras

DON'T go with mollies, they have a huge bio-load and are pretty nippy. :) No guppies either as many male bettas think they are other bettas and attack them! D:

It's a general rule. More than that is very highly frowned upon. I honestly am all for giving my bettas up to 10 gallons of space to themselves, though it is a lot of space taken up for one fish. For 10 gallons, I would stick with what Maisy said, but not go over 5 fish, betta included.

I had mollies with my bettas and it was very hard keeping them clean and healthy. I won't be buying mollies anymore, and definately won't put them with any other species again. In ways, they remind me of goldfish.
