I have heard that neon tetras need to be in groups of like 5. Wouldn't that be to many fish for a 3g? And how would you do 100% water changes?

Thats what I was thinking. Keiichi seems plenty happy by himself. Though I have kinda been wanting a snail, so if I get anything will probally just get one of those. Thanks everyone you have been very helpful!

I personally wouldn't put anything else in there. A 5g with a snail is just perfect. A 3g with a snail is pushing it.

Doggyhog is right.If you want more fish get a bigger tank.

Really? I have my betta, mystery snail, and an ADF in one tank and they all seem pretty fine together. There's also enough little plants and caves for them to hide from each other if needbe.
