I removed the snail and everything is fine for now. I noticed that my Micky mouse platy was chasing and even fighting with my red wag (which isn't as big as him) is this normal or how to I stop this?
I just did a 50% water (I still managed to make a huge mess -.-') to remove the dead plants and nitrites and nitrates. I will test it soon and see how it goes to see if I can introduce a new buddy for them!

That'll maximise your chances.
Lol it's been a while! I'm back and with 2 new platies... Next week I will get my last Platy so they would form a hierarchy and prevent fighting. After the last Platy I am debating whether or not I could stick something else (fish, frog, snail?) before adding my betta. What do you think?

Btw I have had the same filter cartridge all along since they beginning and it's looking ugly and brown now should I change it?

Do you guys think it's possibly to have tank mates for a 5.5gal? Maybe shrimp?

Shrimp or snail or maybe possibly an oto catfish. Not too much really that's what I have come to learn. If you like, maybe and adf.
