i would say only get shrimp if u want the betta to eat them. You could try some ottos once the tank has been running for atleast 4 months (they need a well-established, planted tank)

Otos should be in a group to thrive, and since many of them will *only* eat algae, I'd avoid them in a tank as small as 4 gallons as you'd never be able to grow enough algae to support a small group of them. Pygmy corydoras would be a better choice. Just be sure to use a sand substrate so as not to injure their delicate barbels.
