With my birthday coming up I've been looking for an excuse to improve my current set ups. I have a single male betta residing in a 5 gallon mini bow, it has a plant light so he has some wisteria and anacharis for water quality, as well as an anuibas. I have a female in a 6 gallon pillar which also has anacharis and wisteria. Both set ups are heated, un-filtered, and receive a 100% change every Wednesday with conditioned water.
I would like to know if either of these environments would be 1) large enough to support the bioload of a snail without a large hit in water quality (would be willing to add in a 50% mid week change). 2) what type of snail have you found fun to own/ basic care for the species.
I'm planning on getting 1 snail. If he doesn't get along with 1 betta I could add him to the other tank for his safety, but I'd like an idea of which might be more suitable before I consider bringing home a new pet. (I'm sorry I can't provide pictures. A camera may also be in the works for my birthday considerations).
