I know thus has nothing substantial but just to add to knowledge: Platies are not schooling fish, they are social but don't school. The 1 platy I have now in my 10 gallon, Pumpkin, is doing fine, even though she will be joined by 2 of her fry in 2 months. Sorry, just wanted to explained

Oh yeah? I didn't know that.. I didn't really look it up, I just assumed 'cause I saw them in Petsmart swimming together, and it looked like they were schooling.. but yeah, that just shows it's always best to do research even though something seems accurate ^.^;
So would you say a platy would be okay for my tank? If so, I'll try to look up as much as I can about them before I make an absolute 100% decision on it.

A 5 gallon? I'm sorry, no, you need at least a 10 gallon for any sort of fish conpanions, and platies poop like CRAZY. I'm amazed at how much my Pumpkin does.

Oh, I don't like the idea of dividing tanks that are smaller than 10g's ^.^; and its not that I don't like ghost shrimp, I just don't like the idea of the betta choking to death trying to swallow one on the off-chance he does decide its a great snack >.>;;;..... but even so, I haven't completely turned down the idea of getting ghost shrimp anyways. Seems like it'd be my best option, given the situation.

Snails really are cute and fun. Its really captivating to watch their little tongue thing lick at the walls of the tank XD
