Nothing. I'm pretty sure twister already mentioned this. Maybe not, but a male betta would be PERFECT for your aquarium. Colourful, and they thrive with clean water, room to swim, and a heater.

5 gallons is simply not big enough for all of those fish. It is very small. Don't forget your fish will grow bigger than what they are now.

No. 5 gal is enough for 1 betta by himself.

Also, glofish are just zebra danios modified.
And zebra danios are fin nippers so being with a betta is not good. Also there is too many for that aquarium. Also they dont like the high temperatures around 79 degrees that bettas like to be kept at.

well do you have a heater, filter ect?

Also if you wanted you could make a divider and keep two bettas in it instead.

Because bettas dont make good tank mates.

no they need a high temperature, so unless you have a heater. they will not do.
Also with 5 glo fish in your aquarium right now that is already too many.
Do you have a picture of your aquarium?
