Here's a good setup for your tank:

1 Betta
1 Assasin Snail

I'd leave the ghosties out simply because they take up too much space. In the end, you want:

A new tank for pre-existing betta
Snail control

My betta: Alpha - DT Male

Bettas can and will attack them in such a small space.

thread hijacked and derailed

Not if they have adequate cover to hide in. I think I've provided enough cover in my tank (it was planted with shrimp in mind). I understand that you are concerned about the welfare of the Animals, but I would also like to let you know that I am not new to aquariums, just new to shrimp (I have 9 years experience in breeding swordtails and platys). I understand the bio load concept and am prepared to deal with the testing (daily) and water changes (weekly x2 and as needed) that accompany owning these animals. I am fully prepared to deal with the consequences of owning these animals.

I would also like to remind you that the purpose of this thread was not to determine stock levels, but rather if I needed to wait for my invertebrates to arrive before transferring my betta to his new tank. I thank you all for your concern for the welfare of the animals, but do not wish to discuss the stocking matter any further.

(Sorry if this comes out sounding harsh but I feel like I am being attacked, which is not why I joined this forum; I joined it so that I could connect with like minded enthusiasts and stop driving my friends and family nuts with my fishy stories)

I agree with twolovers on the ghosties, they have hardly any bioload at all and the fact that your tank is heavily planted (gorgeous, btw) I think you should be fine. Aqadvisor doesn't take into account that you have live plants so their advice is to be taken with a grain of salt IMO. I just started a NPT and have 5 ghosties and 5+ MTS in there with 1 male betta and I'm not worried about it being overstocked even though Aqadvisor says it is...really, even if it is overstocked all you need to do is more water changes and everything would be fine. :)
