What type of snail should I get for a 4 gallon betta tank?

Tank is planted, filtered and aerated. Going to Petsmart tomorrow.

Mystery snails are nice. I have one golden mystery apple snail for my 5-gal and he and my betta get along nicely. c:

They won't cause harm to the plants?

They only eat dead plant matter. The only time they eat healthy plants is if they have nothing else to eat.

Mysteries tend to poo a lot, more than bettas. I think nerites will be better for you, they're small and poo less.

I am VERY partial to my mystery snail. That little guy has been through all I've thrown at him in an unheated tank to a heated 70 degree tank and now in an 82 degree tank and he's just as happy as can be. Love him so much.

Just be mindful of water changes as it gets larger. They can get the size of a golf ball.

For a small tank like that I like the Nerite snails. Mystery snails can get large and are heavy poopers.
