Okay, I went to the LFS and got some fish. I did some research and found out that they were Algae eaters. There appears to be many different types of them, but i'm not sure which type they are. I got two of them, and put them in the one gallon container with my betta, and the fungus. They like to scale the surface, and travel together. They are active now, and quick, too. The betta seems to be chasing them and flaring, but he stopped. I'm guessing that they will help eat all the fungus? What type are the ones I got? Any info on them? Is what I did right?

Well, I think the Chinese Algae Eaters are the most common, but without a physical description, it's hard to say.

I would think that even one algae eater would be too much for a one gallon with a betta already in it.

Whoops. So I guess I should get them in a different place?

Well, they are thin and small. They have no vertical line along their body, but instead have a line of black dots. Please help! I can't do research of a fish if I don't even know the name!
