Mystery snails won't reproduce unless their is a mate present, but in a divided 10 gallon, I wouldn't put in snails. They are poop machines.

Sequin (m), Shortcake (f), Westley (m), and Sir Righty of Walton (m).

I believe that nerites can't breed without brackish conditions. And they are smaller. Could probably get away with one in each side.

Right out of the tank. :P They just keep jumping till they get to the top. My VT chased one right out of the tank and it died. :( They are cute little things though! ^.^ If you have a cover it's no prob. And be sure to get the biggest ghost shrimp at your store because, like LittleBettas said, some Bettas like to eat them.

8 month - Betta -VT-male- Peach
9 month - Golden Retriever -Female- Dixie
7 year old - Cinnamon Cockatiel -Female- Ladybird
And a black mystery snail named, Bon-Bon Hoss

To do list:
1. Save money
2. Ask Parents
3. Buy all the Bettas in PetSmart.

Oh yeah and make sure the shrimp have a place to hide where the betta can't go. ;)

Thick plants or a small rock formation work (I had a small seashell with a hole in it... it has been used as a aqurium decoration for 15 years so no worry, lol)

But yeah, if there is a opening, they will jump, my betta did not go after them, after I put a cover on I had no trouble out of them (they are CUTE to watch)

Nerite snails don't reproduce, and just one of them the bioload isn't bad. Multiple snails or other species do poop a LOT. I have annoying snails that hitch-hiked from my plants that were cute at first, but not about 50 of them later... GAH. I bought a new, very large, plant, and within a couple hours it was covered in snail poop.

Ghost shrimp? Cute, fun to watch, and minimal bioload!
