I did some research on the Betta care and knew i didnt want him in a "bowl" but i figured they knew SOMETHING there at the store about cleaners... and the crab was a total impulse buy which i dont usually do.
I did NOT know the snail could have babies with itself though...O_o
I thought I was good if i only got 1... Glad the shrimp will keep the population down! Though I have had this tank for a little over a week now and the snail has STILL not moved... he is alive I checked on him yesterday to make sure... and he was stuck to a rock when i picked him out at the store...
Thanks for the crab info Olympia!
thanks for the tip, I spot clean the tank every day when I look in on him (I found 2 shrimp "sheds" since i got them and i took the old husks out. it was just sheds, they didnt die -thats what i though at first though)
