Tankmates for Elvis...

so tonight i got my FLora Max substrate, that is going to be replacing 90% of the gravel in the tank, if not all....and going to add a few more plants, plan is driftwood covered moss from AquaBid, some microsword and maybe a Anubis or 2

my quistion is, will it hurt to get snails with a pure substrate floor in the tank? i mean its just technically a dirt floor....i was thinking about a Black Mystery Snail from Petsmart they run about 1.99 on them ..

also open to suggestions for tankmates... i know Tetra's are out of the question as is Fancy Goldfish ... but what else are No-No's ...

i know once im dont i kinda want a small group (maybe 4) Cherry Shrimp, and another swimmer that will swim around the tank with elvis...

Shrimp seem to be 50/50 on success. Some bettas will hunt them to death. I had 5 cherry shrimp to start and the first week the cherry shrimp hid in fear and was getting attacked by my betta, they even lost some arms and legs, it was kind of sad. After a month he leaves the adults alone and sometimes try to bite the new babies when they get too far into his caves. I now have well over 30 shrimp now because they can reproduce so fast!

you could get 3-4 corydoras. or a few rasboras. I love the dwarf variety.
