Betta filter: I just bought my betta a new tank and have some water/food questions.

Last night, I broke the large bowl my betta had been living in while cleaning it (oops!), so we decided it was the perfect opportunity to get him a better home. We bought him a 5.5 gallon tank that came with a filter. We also got him a heater, which was great since the winters are cold here.
A packet of Top Fin color-enhancing tropical flakes came with the tank. Are these safe for my betta? (I usually feed him a betta pellet or a couple dried blood worms.)
Also, I have heard tht bettas like still waters. The filter is great and silent, but does create a slight current. Is it OK to just run the filter every other day or so?
Finally, now that my betta has lots more room, are there any options for other fish that would be safe to add to his environment?
Thank you, Mefi friends.
