Yes, shrimp have a tiny bioload as well as being super cute. You will need a lot of planting to help them avoid being eaten, though. I strongly recommend java moss for that. :)

Update!
Just filled my new ten gallon up with sand. Sometime in the next couple days I'll be adding plants/ decorations and starting cycling.
And cleaning the sand wasn't as hard as I'd thought it was going to be.

Snails often have a large bio-load. I'd reccomend getting a nerite snail (can't breed in freshwater!!!), or a pond snail (if you get these make sure to not over feed as you will go from 1 to 10 snails in a heartbeat O.o) or a rabbit snail (if you can find one) as they have a smaller bio-load than mystery/apple snails (they get to the size of a tennis ball O.o).

Rabbit snails are beautiful. IMO it's even fine to keep a pair, they breed very slowly and only have one (live) baby at a time.

Yeah, somebody put up pictures of their rabbit snail in another thread, and I was pretty impressed. They look cool.

Rabbit snails are very hard to find, though.

I would reccomend platys to go in the tank with your betta as they've always been very calm with my boy!

Not all platys get along with bettas and not all bettas get along with platys... I have certain males who can be with certain fish, and certain males who cannot be with any fish... Just forewarning :)

In a 10 gallon, I'd stick to slower fish (platys, NOT danios or neon tetras), bottom fish (shrimp, cories) with a betta. I like to add fabric or silk plants, hidey holes, and live plants. :)

Cool, thank you. I'll probably get four or so Corys (probably pygmys), one or two ghost shrimp OR Nerite snails, and some live plants/ decorations.
