Then I'll probably just put maybe some cleaners (snails help keep it clean right? and ghost shrimp so he can have fun hunting them.

Snails will eat leftover fish food or algae (depends on type of snail)
But keep in mind they poop A LOT.

Shrimp however are very low bio load. Some bettas eat them, some won't.

would a normal filter help with that or would they be more trouble than they are worth?

Usually the poo just sits in the gravel until you siphon it out...
IMO they are more trouble than help. What goes in must come out and they can eat a lot ;)

Yeah you might need to cup your betta while the shrimp eat, othereise he will steal all their food and bloat himself. Bettas are so silly xD

With snails when I had them is put them in a cup to feed.

Aww I'm sorry I feel like everything I'm writing is negative, lol I just want to make sure you know before getting them.
They sell shrimp pellets, like omega one brand, but really shrimp eat any sort of fish food. I'm not sure if they eat veggies or not, but I do know they eat pellets.

No no please don't feel that way at all its very helpful I know very little so being able to voice concerns etc... and get honest answers is most helpful.
