Red cherry shrimp - even prettier, but some bettas do prefer to hunt them because of their colour. Mine are all ok, though, both in my male tank and my sorority.

I agree on the red cherries, just more expensive than ghosties or snails.

If you're still considering snails a Nerite snail will be fine, they can't breed unless your water is brackish (which it shouldn't be).

If you're looking for shrimps, I would try ghost shrimps first, they're generally cheaper, you should plop a few of these guys in if your Betta attacks them that either means your Betta in general is just more aggressive by nature, or that the shrimps don't have enough cover to hide from the Betta.

If the shrimps fare well I'll plop a few of RCS in if you'd like, start giving them more cover (java moss attached to something), and they should thrive~

I second this. Rather spend 30 cents on shrimp and them get attacked/eaten compared to $3+ on them and have them be a snack!

Definitly shrimp.. a dozen ghost shrimp cost me 4 bucks.. 2 mystery snails cost the same 4 bucks.. And the Shrimp have a less bio load as pointed out above.
