I have a 10 gal with 1 betta and 6 corys and I think it's at it's MAX on what it can handle. I wouldn't worry about the snail buy with the 6 tetras it seems like a lot.

PS: My betta lives pretty good with the 6 corys.

Good good =) I cant wait to get my betta out of the tank into a different one, I was looking at him a moment ago and his fins are looking a bit rough around the edges. Theres nothing in the tank that he could catch them on so im assuming those bloody tetras are sneaking a bite when im not watching.

When I put my betta into his own little tank tomorrow is there anything I need to do like use something from the main tank to get it going or can I just add water straight from the tap?

Water conditioner, make sure it's the same temperature as the other tank. I would still float him for 10 minutes and then slowly add a little of the new water into the cup. Keep doing that until it's full, then net him out and place him in the new tank.

Yes, better to cycle the tank then add him.
But in other posts, you said you are cycling it already, no?

Ziplock bag with air would work or a bag from the petstore that has been dried out would also work.

Oh, well then what I said before is all you would need to do. Is there sand in his last tank? You could move that into the keeper since sand is another source for bacteria and a biological filter.
