Would it be ok if the zebras were long-finned? Or would that be a total no-no

Hmmm..... It depends on your betta really. Some male bettas will live with Guppies with no problem and others.... well.... it isn't too pretty!

Long fins are a rule of thumb are usually no go, but if you would like to you could try! You never know. Also like mentioned above Rosy Red minnows are fun to watch. I like mine. I would be careful with the adding so many fish at once, you could disrupt the cycle. id add the corys then 2 weeks later add the danios.

My Betta, Jasper, has a Blue Mystery Snail buddy "Gary". Other than trying to taste-test him at first introduction, he doesn't mind his new tank mate and even swims over to check up on Gary often to make sure he's still around. :)

Once I get a 10g set up, I will probably add a 2nd one. They're neat little guys, I think.

Also, snails need high levels of calcium, ph and kh, which make bettas prone to finrot and bacterial infections.
