New girl here!

Hey guys! I'm new here. I'm 27 years old and currently own a 5 gallon tank housing one Betta. I know a lot is going around about that being too small but my room can't really hold any bigger. My Betta has been around a few years and I'm thinking she's near the end. So I'm browsing the internet and coming here to find suggestions of other fish I can hold in my 5 gallon tank. One day I will upgrade to bigger but it won't be for a long time. Thanks guys. Can't wait to hear from you all!

A lot of the new tanks are getting taller, I liked my aquamode 600 it was cheap, it was a semi circle bow fronted tank so it didn't take up much room and it was pretty, I think it was around 65 litres which I think is around 10 gal

Definitely do not do this. When buying new fish, buy what your current tank can handle for adult size. Don't buy for the future because I see it alot and those upgrades don't come like planned. Research is key to this hobby. Welcome to AA!

Haha no I wasn't planning on doing that. I'm trying to research what I can fit in my 5 gallon. I'm thinking shrimp but someone mentioned another kind of fish I've never heard of so I've got some research to do.
