Lol you're lucky. My betta used to "bully" the snail, by not letting it to get to the algae wafer. Been forced to feed the snail in a diff container, however, right now he doesn't seem to care much for the snail.

I think he thinks it's a moving rock and when he finds it in an odd spot he's more like "wtf?"

And yeah shrimp are more active than snails I guess, hrmm.. well they aren't too expensive if you want to try again with them :D

Ooh, great ideas y'all! Thank you! Some stuff to think about.

Those Bamboo shrimp look COOL. Though I was really hoping to have something to help clean up the bottom of the floor... Filter shrimp, does that help keep the water cleaner?

Is there a reason I should try a different shrimp than the Red Cherry? I just like how red they are. lol But I'm perfectly open to trying something else, if there's a reason to not go with them. I'd have to order anything other than Ghost shrimp anyway. Small town, the smart is all I have. >.< Unless you count the LFS even worse than the smart...

I wouldn't worry so much about getting something to clean the tank, since it's only a 3.5 gal you'll have to do cleaning anyway. Just wanted to point out that even ghost shrimp can be fun (if they survive :)). I have one in a four gal with my rosetail betta, and during feeding time, he'll scamper up to the top and steal a pellet. It's pretty amusing. Apparently he doesn't feel like waiting around at the bottom anymore!
If those cherry reds work out instead, that would be very cool. I agree that it's fun to have some color in there. Good luck!

Don't bet bamboo shrimp please. They are wild caught because they haven't been succesfully bred in captivity.
