Mystery snails aren't very good. They will dirty your tank more than clean it. They poop ALOT! Also it's a common misconception that they'll just clean your tank of algae or whatever but they can't live off of just that they need slices of carrots zucchini etc. And they also need Calcium to keep their shells from deteriorating which is a painful process. I have one and I love it but it has it's own tank and shares an airstone with my other betta :)

You don't need a "cleaning animal". If you have appropriate stocking levels, and are keeping up with water changes, there should be no issues. If there is, its a sign that something is wrong.

Since I have this big tank now...

I'm SO curious as to how Drax would like Ghost Shrimp or other fish around.

Then again aren't there some horror stories of Ghost Shrimp attacking Betta's?

Drax is so laid back, I'd be scared he'd get bullied... and have his lunch money stolen!

Whoa! 10 comets in a 10g tank!? Goldfish are one of the biggest waste produceing fish in the history of aquariums. They require at least 10 gallons...per fish, although many people say they should have more (and they should). How big are they? What kind of WC schedule do you have?

Also, comets are not suitable for the 10g aquarium. Many people believe this goldfish should be kept stricly as a pond fish, due to their love to dart all over the place (that is why they are called "commets").

I am not trying to scold anyone, I am just bringing it to the attention of the thread.

You could try An African Dwarf frog or two. Research them first though...they're a little tricky to feed.
