IMO-that is just fine along with one Betta, provided that the needed water changes are being made.

That's fine.. but is your tank cycled? Inverts (snails and shrimp) are very sensitive to water quality, the shrimp especially.

what 1f2f said. =]

If you have a 5 gallon you can have up to 5 shrimp, one snail, and a betta and still be good. =]
