Thanks for checking out this quick guide on the top 3 betta tank mates for a small 3 gallon tank. Here is a quick video to peruse:

3)White Skirt Tetra

Tetras are usually a good choice for bettas, and the white skirt is a good choice. They are quite popular as a community tank fish. They are mild, hardy and can live up to 7 years!

2)Ramshorn Snail

Some snails make good tankmates for the betta. The deciding factor for a good snail mate is the size. You want to make sure you choose a large snail, like the ramshorn, as bettas have been known to eat smaller snails. The Ramshorn snail make a great betta mate!

1)Albino Bristlenose Pleco

The albino bristlenose pleco, like the catfish variety, is a welcome bottom feeder for a good betta tank. They like to dwell at the bottom, which works as the betta is a mid and top tank swimmer. The albino bristlenose is also a cleaning machine, it will clean and eat algae all day long. This is why it makes our top spot.
