Hello,

I'm in the process of setting up a 20G for my Sly. I was thinking of having him as the only fish, but adding a handful (6-8?) of glass shrimp and maybe 2 turbo snails.

I will have a few sponge filters and several live plants.

What are your thoughts?

Will my betta eat snail eggs if they reproduce? I don't want to get overrun...

My bettas never eat the snail eggs but the snails will reproduce a lot.I have over 100 snails in my snail tank and there is only one adult.

You might be better off with nerite and/or mystery snails.
It is easier to control their populations.

Nerite eggs won't hatch in freshwater. And **if** your mystery snail should lay eggs (doesn't always happen) they leave them in clusters above the water line, so it's easy to dispose of them before they can hatch.
