Personally I would never put shrimp into my tank with my betta as I have heard so many horror stories plus they are quite expensive over here, so sushi is definately not on the menu for my betta.lol. I am just going to leave him on his own he seems happy enough, I just thought a snail could help with the cleaning a bit but they do poop a lot so it wouldn't be worth it.

Thanks for your help =)

It never really made too much sense about getting another fish to do cleaning. You add onto bioload because they poop either as much as a betta, or even more than a betta. So technically, there's no cleaning going on, unless you mean algae. And even with that, there's hardly anything that cleans algae extremely efficiently. I've only heard of nerite snails, and mixed reviews with otos. Just sayin~

I'm just going to leave him on his own, he seems content enough especially when my nose is pressed up against the tank all the time, I bet he thinks he has a tankmate lol

Really. I typed in my tank at 5 gallons with filter and it told me I was overstocked with a single betta in it.
