Snails like ramshorns will mate if two are present. If there is only one, it can and will lay eggs by itself.

ramshorns are not asexual. they are hermaphrodites. meaning that they can change gender at will... one ramshorn which has never came in contact with another cannot fertilize itself and reproduce...

That said, I wouldn't look into a tank mate for a 1 gallon at all.... it's simply too small.
Sure you can get something like a ghost shrimp but most likely they will die in a day or two... which indicates the instability of water parameters in such a small, unfoiltered tank

Agree on the ghost shrimp 100% It is likely that the shrimp would die quickly and pollute the tank within hours.

Ramshorns do not change gender, they are both male and female at the same time. When they mate both lay eggs.
