Company For a Betta = Either a snack or a fight waiting to happen.

A betta can't really get 'lonely'....but if you still want to get something else because you feel the tank is empty, I'd say more silk plants (or maybe a few live ones) and a shrimp or two. Preferably a species of shrimp that won't take a nip at your betta.

Hiding places are not negotiable on that though, otherwise your betta will consider the shrimp a snack. If you try to get any other fish, I'd say good luck with that...your betta may seem like a good boy now, but once you stick another fish in his territory he will attack it, or they will both be stressed enough to get sick and die.

Just remember that shrimp eat algae (if the petstore people say they eat fish poo, you smack them. Smack them HARD. No fish on this earth eat other fish poo) and you'll need to buy them Algae wafers. I don't know how often you feed them though.
