Hello,
You could get 1-2 more nerite snails or 2-3 more horned nerite snails (just make sure to have enough algae to feed all of them!)

You could get several shrimp, 3-5 or so for the 5 gal.

Update!

Ok so in the past few days i did a little adjustments. I trimmed the cabomba in the back of the tank so its not as long and is a little fuller. Also realized how comfortable my betta is with me. He actually let me pet him. I was adding more snails and he was really close to my hand so i tried and voila! Once i get some frozen bloodworms i wanna hand feed him. So i bought 2 more nerite snails and now have 3 in the tank. Heres a picture of them and the algae they have to eat


All i'm missing is the shrimp now. I also want to change the filter to a HOB to have a little more space in the tank. I'm debating between an AC20 or a Marina Slim S10. I like ACs because of interchangeable media but the slim is cheaper. I'm also looking for one that has a stronger flow and will disturb the water more because i want to remove the airstone. Which one should i go for?

SHRIMP! just got 5 Amano shrimp. I'm still in the car but I'll update with pictures when I get home. They didn't have any RCS left though. All that's left for this tank now is a new filter and I want to replace the small wood like ornament in the middle with a small piece of driftwood. I'm also adding a java fern, moss ball and maybe some java moss to the tank. I want to try and have an all live plant tank. I never really liked fake plants.

Well here are the shrimp! The betta was very curious but never attacked or chased them. Pretty happy now so i might want to add 5 RCS once my LFS gets some.

Ok I have a question. I seem to be getting a better deal if I buy 10 Sakura shrimps instead of 5. If I get ten would I be overstocked? If I am i can just get 5. If they over populate I'll use the shrimp for food in one of my bigger tanks.

Shrimp will love the live plants. Java moss, java fern, anubias are all pretty simple to grow and shrimp love hanging out in the j.moss

I'm adding in some java moss, a java fern and a moss ball. I was really surprised how the betta didn't attack the shrimp. Pretty funny actually he would just perch himself on a plant and just watch them lol
