Tank Mates

What sort of tank mate could I get for my Betta who now resides in a 5 gallon tank? Our local PetSmart does not carry shrimp, that I know of.

I'm not sure I want ADF because the last time we had some one jumped out and died under a pile of my brother dirty clothes, plus they never did eat when I would soak bloodworms and shoot them down to them.

I don't know if I want to get a crab of some kind because I hear that they are climbers and I don't want to wake up with crab on my face XD

Do snails slime/crawl out of tanks or would one or two of them be "Ok" to put in a tank with a Betta? Also, if I did get a snail what kind should I get?

Diamond Boy - dark blue/green VT
Blood Rayne - orange/red VT
Speckles - white w/reddish brown spots VT
Papillon - purple-ish/pink butterfly VT

RIP Leonidas (VT), Hootie (CT),
Purple Haze (VT), Spartacus (CT), and Blowfish (VT)
UT = unknown tail

Don't leave me hanging people. XD

I want to know your opinions on what you think I should get. I'm leaning towards snails but I still just don't know.

I need input! lol

The sky's the limit. It looks like you are looking in the realm of crustaceans and such...not really my thing. Sorry!

I think you could put a couple of shrimp in there.
