I would say maybe, it also depends on your water. Is your water hard or soft?

Oh, well for snails in soft water their shells crack, not good for them. In softer water they need calcium additives to help with that.

I want a 10 gallon cherry shrimp tank but I don't have any where to put it. Plus the power bill is starting to get a bit higher. My mom told me in a semi yelling voice, more mad really.

That's pretty much it.

You can do a small NPT and house several shrimps. I don't really like snails.

Or another Betta.
