Friends for my betta

Hi all, one question. Can my male half moon betta live with one glo-fish tetra in a 5 gallon bow front tank with floating plants or betta log. Thanks for the feedback I appreciate it

No. The 5 gallon is not big enough for glofish. Plus they are schooling fish Nd should be kept in groups of 6 or more.

With that size tank I don't think there really is much else you can put in there...maybe some shrimp or a snail if the betta doesn't eat the Shrimp

A Snail or Ghost Shrimp. NOT Cherry Shrimp. They are too colorful and will be slaughtered IME.
