Okay, so no fish in such a small tank, but perhaps start with some ghost shrimp and then sea what can happen from there shrimp and snail wise. Thanks for all your help guys! One last question, if I get snails or shrimp will they breed? I mean, it must be hard to tell the gender of them, I really don't want loads of snail or shrimps! Thanks again!

Ok, just one thing about the snails though... they produce alot of stool, and , atleast for my little apple snail, they often leave behind some sort of slime trail?

Really? I had an apple snail and he didn't leave a slime trail. Though I guess could depend on the snail?
And yes, they are quite messy. But they're cute (XD) and make good tank mates.

I think I prefer the idea of shrimp. They look very cool, they remind me of "finding Nemo" You know, jac, the french cleaning shrimp?

In my opinion, ghost shrimp aren't that fun. they're see- through, so its hard to spot them in your tank. plus, they grow pretty big and have territorial issues. cherry shrimp stay small and adorable :3 they are also very pretty colors from light light pink andslightly clear, to deep red. They also are friendly with each other :) im getting 5 cherr shrimp for my 2.5 gal

You would have to get a filter i heard you put goldifish without a filter but they produces bunch of amino and the betta might still try to kill it

greena This thread is over a year old so I'm sure the OP did what ever they were planning to already. But goldfish and bettas shouldn't be mixed since bettas are tropical and goldfish are coldwater fish. Also goldfish produce a ton of waste and what I've read says they need double the filtration of normal fish but at least regular filtration. Anyways four gallons is too small for fishy tankmates.
