yeah one snail shouldnt give you an issue if you gravel vacuum. nerites are amazing at eating the algae if you have any.

Yes, they are amazing when it comes to eating the algae, they even eat GSA and other hard algae and leave mosses alone. The only downside to these beautiful snails is the fact that they lay eggs almost freakin everywhere and are near impossible to remove immediately. The time and effort spent removing them vs the number of eggs and possible damage to nearby items is not even worth it.(If you have an effective method of removing them then, please, by all means post 'cause I would really like to know lol) An option could be to make the conditions right in your tank right and have them hatch, but I dont usually hear very many success stories.

Two snails? depends what kind. Some are asexual, some do need a partner... In a 10 gallon the pleco won't last. It's too small for him >< otherwise trust me I would have gotten a couple =D Plecos get bigger, and need a lot more space. The fish and the snails are just fine however. I don't remember plecos eating snail eggs... so no idea about that.

If you ever run into a snail infestation, use a leafy green vegetable and they'll go on it, which then they can be removed. I had a fake plant the snails loved o_O bad plant for bettas (rough) but never caused a problem with any of my bettas... And the snails were easily removed since they crowded on that plant lol.

For now, yes, but I highly recommend one of two things... (I assume you have a small baby one?) either return him, or save up for at least a 30 gallon tank :)
