I personally would not keep any tank mates with a Betta in a 2.5g tank. 10g minimum for le before I add friends :)

I don't do shrimp, they're $5 each here so no clue. Snails have high bioload. I am sure a moss ball would work!

No animal tank mates in a 2.5 gallon, it's just not enough space =/ but a moss ball would be great!!!!!

You need to QT a Moss Ball, they carry snails, critters and disease from pet store tanks too. You should always QT new fish and plants. I plan to put mine in a 0.5g tank for a few weeks until I intro them to my tanks.
