I think the reproduction part is the only thing I am worried about, I'd rather not have an explosion of snails :/ Though I have heard that bettas will sometimes eat baby snails? Is that true?
I've heard that too that bettas eat small snails. I haven't ever seen a betta eating a snail though...

EDIT: I see lilnaugrim already answered the question... :D
My bettas have always been the opposite = no interest in snails.

But you can keep larger snails, like apple or zebra snails. :) Although if they made babies, your bettas would probably eat them... But adults are definitely too large for bettas mouth. :D

Oh no, they don't eat the adults they just kill them. They pick their eye's and then continue on to destroy their body once the snail is dead. I literally cannot keep any snails, I've tried all types! :-/

Assassins, Ninjas, Knights, yep got them all haha. Shimps are a huuuge no-no, they gobble them up like snacks the instant they hit the water! I've tried Amano, Ghost, and Neo's and no such luck, I've debated a Bamboo shrimp but I'm not sure I could handle a shrimp that grows up to 5 inches they kind of skeeve me out too lol I don't mind when they're in the water, just when I have to transport them or move them somewhere haha

You have a very good eye for color. Your use of decorations compliment each of your bettas very well ^.^
