Smile What tank mates are good for 20 gallon?

I'm getting a betta in a day or two, and I can't get a seperate tank for the betta himself until christmas, so for now I will put him in my community tank. It's 20 gallons, and has two blackskirt tetras (we used to have like 20 fish but they all died), and an alge eater.

So what type of frogs are good with betta's, and how many ghost shrimp are the maximum amount? Should I also get little snails?
Thank you

African dwarf frogs are good. I think you could have a LOT of shrimp in a 20 gallon!! Probably about 20, but remember, they might breed! But the Betta will probably eat the babies if they do breed. Shrimp don't take up a lot of room and don't make much waste, so you could probably fit a bunch in there.

I'm not sure about the snails, but snails often breed like crazy. Just so you know.
