You can have snails. Try not to get apple snails, though - they can grow up to 10cm. Maybe some trumpet snails (though you hardly see them). You can just look up the types of snails - as there is heaps :)

You could also have a shrimp or too, I do believe.

They can, of course they can - but for a lot of fish keepers it is not a sufficient size. But guys, please don't make this into an argument. :) Everyone is allowed their opinions!

Zebra Danios get 2 inches and are too active. Pet stores dont know what there doing. You NEED to learn that. Smaller goldfish average 6-8inches. Zebra Danios also NEED schools of 5. They are too active to be with Bettas.

you no not every pet store is run buy idiots there are family buisnesses that own fish and no what there talking about and like Hopelessaddict101 said im ending this argument here because we are acting to childish fighting about fish. We obviously have different techniques on how we raise our fishies and if it works for us up-till now then theres no need to change. Im sorry for ranting on this page and im sorry for getting in an argument with you ChoclateBetta

That is WAY overstocked, and goldfish are cold water NOT tropical. They need at least 30 gallons and will live up to 20 years if cared for proper and can get big enough to eat a betta.

Choclate, stop. You both are taking this way out of hand. Choclate, you cannot tell people how to keep their fish. You can give them advice on how to, and what works best, but you cannot lecture them. That is not cool.
