I have made up my mind on the following:
3-4 Cherry Shrimp
1 Female Betta
1 Nerite Snail
I'll have to hold on for a while though but at least now I know what I'm getting

Bettas:

Prince:Male Veiltail-blue, purple and greenish-blue
Blaze:Male Veiltail-red,yellow and pink
Aquarius:Female Veiltail-dark blue and light blue
Sunrise:Male Crowntail-brownish-red,dark red and clear
Marble:Male Veiltail-Marble purple, blue, red, tan and white
Queen(of the 10 gal. ): Female Veiltail-pink, tan and blue
Tank-mates:

Magma: Male Red Wag Platy
Mickey:Male MM Platy
Sunny- Male Sunburst Platy
3 Ghost Shrimp
Soon to be: 10 gal. community

Btw, for future reference, its two nerites per 5 gallons of space :B Not a lot of people know that.

And btw, hun, Id keep it to only the shrimp or only a snail or two. Trust me, that snail poop is going to keep you BUSY. They poop like mad, especially nerites :P

You seem to want "cool" tank mates...Id say go for the shrimp.

They might be eaten/attacked (which can happen), so try to get them as many hiding spots and plants as possible. Keep the water clean, as theyre sensitive.

If they dont make it, then try the snails. Theyre cool little things, but they dont do much and poop like its no bodys business. (ewww..)
