I've been thinking about getting 3 amano shrimp or a malaysian trumpet snail for my 3 gallon with my betta because no matter what I've tried so far, I can't get rid of this algae that keeps coming back.

I looked it up on AqAdvisor and it says it shouldn't be a problem.

i've tried this and it truly works, try using your hands and a brush of some sort, don't substitute a fish for something you could do
thats just stupid

Even WITH a filter, that's not a good idea.
I had 4 goldfish in my ten gallon once, and even with weekly changes and a filter, it was horrible. There have been cases where a betta has lived with goldfish. But that was ONE betta, in a very large thank with 5 or 6 goldfish. Goldfish can get HUGE, I don't want to sound mean, but I'd leave the females in the 10 gallon and put the goldfish in a pond or larger tank or find someone who can take care of them. You could even give them to a store.

hi, yesterday I bought 2 ghost shrimps, but today I woke up and one of them was gone and the other dead. I suppose my betta eat them.... I would love to have another animal in my tank but if my betta didn't like two small shrimps, I don't know if it is a good ideia to put another fish with him. should I try ghost shrimps again, or other animal, or should I accept that my betta is an anti-social?

I think I'm lucky with the fish I put in with Leroy. He is a good boy and gets along well with my 3 neon tetras and 3 peppered cories. I think he would rather play in the plants than with the other fish. I wonder sometimes if he even knows other fish are in there with him! lol
