I lived in a single room for a few years. At first I bought a 5 gallon fish tank with a single fish- allowed. After about a year with no inspections or anyone entering my room, I added a divided tank with bettas- more than one tank, not allowed. Another 6 months went by, no inspections. Got a lizard that lived under the bed when I wasn't in the room- definitely not allowed. Few more months. Guinea pig- so totally ridiculously not allowed. Lived with all of them for the remainder of my time at that school- never had an inspection, and I had a furry friend! (as well as a few scaly ones!)
Moral of the story- a snail should be fine.
Oh my god that is amazing XD

I stated earlier that I do not want to pour algae killing chemicals into my tank, I do not trust them.
I just introduced a tiger nerite to the tank, the betta is NOT happy but he can get over it lol the snail is already hard at work cleaning up the tank! Pretty excited.
